Alex



Alex got a job at Subway. His first day was Friday, 9 AM until 3 PM. Steve and I held our breathe all day, suspecting a telephone call to say that he quit or was fired or hated it or something "bad". Afterall, Steve and I haven't been able to make him work more than three hours at a time. We pay better than Subway.

No call. No problem. He walked to CMFA and prepared for the end-of-program performance in which he would be partnering one of the older ballet dancers. Steve and I went to watch at 5 PM. It was a hoot! I took some photos but most of them were terrible...too blurry, poor lighting...I was far away too. I'll post two others on my other blog...http://susanlenzfamily.blogspot.com.

After the performance Alex told us that his next day of work started in the morning at 8 AM. It would last until 8 PM. Steve and I roared with laughter...but Alex made it through the long day. Today, Sunday, he worked from 10 AM until 6 PM! I still can't believe it!
