55 - A Beautiful Life

It was a dangerous job for crappy pay. Lunchtime was leftovers or takeout chosen for convenience rather than taste. Some of his co-workers were great, but most were tedious at best, aggravating at worst. But each evening as he prepared to head home, he was reminded that in spite of it all, life was beautiful.

Got a story you can tell in 55 words? The G-Man wants to know!

Isn't lunchtime usually left overs? Lots of people live their life hating their jobs... and then go home and watch TV for 6 hours or more ... that is not living either.

Well, he's a true optimist. I loved this 55. So many of us have to spend years of our lives doing things we don't want to...being unappreciated...and looking for those bits of beauty that cost nothing.

@Margaret: So true! I hardly ever watch TV and if it wasn't for my husband, there wouldn't even be one in this house. I don't see the point of working hard all day so I can come home and watch fake people have fake lives when I could be having a real life of my own!

Reminds me of an early morning on my way to work. There was a beautiful sunrise I would have missed if not for the commute.
