Jobs are a great way to learn about the world. Luckily, I had my share. Here I share some of the poignant stories and the lessons I tried to learn.

During university, I worked for a while, playing piano accompaniments during ballet lessons. It was boring work (I was nineteen and the girls were six) so I started to throw a few syncopations into the classical music. The teacher said “I have good news and I have bad news. The bad news is that you’re fired. The good news is that you must have an ear for jazz. Go study jazz.” So I did.
Back in Canada, I spent a week or two working as kindergarten assistant for my Mom, who was a superb kindergarten teacher. The kids there are now well into their fifties. Benjy, what are you up to these days?
