My list of careers is long.

My list of careers that I am seeking to make happen include:
Professional best man (I have had three serious inquiries thus far)
I recently posted a list of future careers that I am interested in pursuing, and in addition to those, I’m also interested in launching an efficiency consulting firm. I’m confident that I can improve the efficiency and productivity of almost anyone if you give me a week.
My interests are wide and varied. I collect jobs like some people collect antiques.
As a result, for an extremely brief but shameful moment, I also considered the career of a professional cuddler, an option that I became aware of after reading about it in TIME.
Graduate student Jacqueline Samuel has turned the act of cuddling into a business. In June, the 29-year-old launched the Snuggery, a company that allows clients to cuddle with her for $60 an hour.
Thankfully, the idea of professional cuddling did not last long, for a number of reasons.
First, I suspect that my wife might be opposed to this particular career choice.
Second, $60 an hour did not sound like enough money to make the effort worth my time.
But most important, the job sounds incredibly boring. Simply holding a person for a solid hour? If I was allowed to read a book or listen to a podcast while cuddling, it might be worthy of my time and hold my interest, but holding some sorry sack for an hour without any other distraction?
No thank you.
