You can tell by the way he is looking after his grandmother and nieces (bro, uncle and father in background) that this young graduate (on graduation day) knows how to take care of the business of others. And so it goes, as with so many of his 2009 grad-ilk that the job hunt is actually a bear hunt! After a couple freelance gigs, a possibly unfortunate (for him) move back to the home front with the rents, it turns out his challenge is my good fortune as he’s agreed to travel the country with me on the book tour. Our first few stops were work but also fun and laugh-filled, included a few frustrations which afforded me some humble pie. At a reading, he handed out taste treats and reminded me to call out page numbers (for those who had books in hand) as I discussed the corresponding recipes (amongst other things). And, after last night asked me if I wanted his “notes” re my “act” which proved to be right on the money. Hopefully I’ll not drive him nuts but continue to reap the utter pleasure of hanging with my young adult son before he truly heads out on his own.
