When you enjoy what you are doing, it is pleasant, no?
The electrician was a really amiable guy. I told him how hard I'd been working on my thesis for the last few days, and he said, "Ah, but when you enjoy what you are doing, it is pleasant, no?" He must have been enjoying his work, though, because it took him 2 hours to "install" the little space heater. This was a process that seemed to involve nothing more than attaching an extension cord to the thing. So I guess licensed electrician is a cool job here in France.
Though when the wall socket buzzed back and blew out my Linksys wifi router, well, that was a bummer.Posted by amol at March 4, 2003 11:25 AM
