Best Job Ever

I happen to be living two great jobs as it is: writing and publishing my books, and sign language interpreting. But I have always thought it would be awesome to be the person who gets to name colors. Paint chips, crayons, nail polish. There may not be new colors in the strictest sense, but old shades are constantly “revived.” And really, what is Perky Pink supposed to look like, except pink? And those giant boxes of crayons don’t say “Green 1,” “Green 2,” etc.

So that’s what I would love to do.

  • Firestone Orange
  • Bruised Purple
  • Sandstone
  • Spiderweb Gray
  • Werewolf’s Eye (yellow)

Hmm, I could make a whole batch of “Fantasy Crayons” with colors geared toward that genre. Muahaha.

What do you think would be the best job ever? Ice cream taster? Ice cream flavor inventor? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

When a little boy was asked what he thought the best job in the world was, he replied, “Garbage man because they only work one day a week.”

    I have ALWAYS thought it would be awesome to be the color-namer! Lipstick colors, too–never mind that I rarely wear them πŸ˜› “Ruby Sunset…”

    I love, love crayons and their names. I’m so with you to do that. How about a box of 96? That’s way too small–250 colors. πŸ™‚

  5. Sounds like a FAB job Angela…LOL!!

    Best job ever – test driving off road vehicles (ATVs, motocross, jeeps, snowmobiles etc)! OMG yes! LOL!

    Chocolate taster. Nutella taster, wine taster (notice a trend here?)…man, there are so many I’d love. πŸ˜€ I’d also love to take part in sleep studies. There are few things I love more than napping.
