Finding That Just Right Part-Time Job

Retirement is great, but I need something to fill in the idle hours.  Not anything too challenging. Or not where what I do might have long term consequences. After much searching, I think I’ve found just the thing.  My resume has been submitted and I’m anxiously awaiting a call.

The job is White House Chief of Staff. What could be so hard about that? After all, I’ve heard the boss watches TV most of the day and is otherwise occupied with endless tweets that only he can edit (I could have saved him from the “smocking gun” debacle). I know it can be hard to work for someone who knows everything and wants to be completely in charge but I’m resourceful and can find other things to do.

Perhaps I could help Stephen Miller draft even crueler immigration policy. Or maybe I could help Mike Pence find his voice. I’ll bet Ivanka needs my imagination to bring that Moscow tower project back to life. Or Melania could use me to smack down (or is it smock down?) all the bullies in her life.  Circumventing the Mueller probe is just the thing for my sophisticated legal mind. From helping Steve Mnuchin balance the books to crafting a fool-proof denuclearization plan for Pompeo, there is just no end to the opportunities.

I was on the short list for UN Ambassador, but lost out to someone blonde.  So close. Not to worry. I’ll keep looking until I find just the right position that will make the most of  my highly developed management skills. If I get desperate, I could always take on the Head Coach for the Green Bay Packers. Are they as desperate as the West Wing?  We’ll see.

    Karin, you are hilarious. And yes, you would make a great chief of staff, although you might tire of having to dole out snacks, enforce timeouts and encourage naps when he gets cranky.
