Taken straight from an episode of Kids Say The Darndest Things...? A show hosted by Bill Cosby where he asks kids various questions as if it is an interview and he, as well as the kids, always find a way to make us laugh. Based on Art Linkletter's House Party, Kids Say has host Cosby talking to young kids about everything from dead goldfish to love letters.
Well it wasn't an episode of that show..but it could be if Mr. Cosby had my daughter up on stage..... My dad listens to music all day on his computer! would be the response if someone was to ask my kids (mostly the youngest) what her dad does. They know their mom goes to work at the hospital, where she's a nurse, but me....?
I could only imagine the laughter by the studio audience and there I would be trying to hide in someone's shadow! Probably not, since I'm not easily embarrassed.
Why would she say that? Simple explanation.. As I work on my computer in my home office I usually listen to my cd collection or streaming media files (radio, music mixes.. sporting events). I love to work with music in the background.. mind-you there are times when I love the silence. It can also get pretty noisy when I'm listening to a soccer or NBA game.. I'm one of those people that screams, shouts and make several comments while listening to sporting events!
Work from home, telecommute, freelance, contract, telecommuting, work at home dad, work at home mom.. all titles that describe what I and thousands of others do. With the Internet, new faster computers and software that can do just about anything.. working from home is becoming more and more acceptable by employers. They no longer have to pay the overhead to keep a huge work force in an office setting, no longer have to deal with moody employees that hate the drive in daily and parents can now spend more time with their kids and family. Working from home can be a win win situation for both employers and employees!
