Nothing quite amazes me as the feeling of freedom I get from riding a horse. Out in the fields at a trot or even better, a full gallop, wind in my hair, it feels as though the horse plus I are the only things in the world. If I had my wish, I wouldn’t have to work this job of mine; I could spend every afternoon out on the ranch. It would be great to have a job out among the horses, that would be the ultimate for me.
However, I don’t want to sound like a whiner because my task at the Heating & Air Conditioning corporation is quite good. They pay me well, I get a lot of paid time off, wonderful benefits, plus once per year, they send out a tech to tune up my heating plus cooling system. I absolutely don’t want to sound like I hate my job in the Heating & Air Conditioning manufacturing plant, because it is entirely great. Well, maybe not “really great” because assembling air conditioner parts just can’t compare to riding horseback across the plains. If the Heating & Air Conditioning task didn’t pay me so well, I would never get to ride a horse at all, because nothing about horses is cheap.
That is one of life’s little ironies, isn’t it, that I want to quit the Heating & Air Conditioning plant to go ride horses. Without the job, I can’t afford to ride horses, and for now I will just stick with my system, where on weekdays I am all about the Heating & Air Conditioning, though the weekends belong to the horses.
