Tell Me About One of Your Weirdest Jobs
Plus a few notes from the road—sorry I've been gone so long!
My apologies, it’s been more than a minute since our our last walk. I’ve been on tour promoting my new memoir, Dirtbag, Massachusetts. If you haven’t already ordered yourself a copy, it’d mean the world to me if you considered doing just that (ask for it at your local independent bookstore or library!). You can also order a signed copy of Dirtbag, Massachusetts via the good people at Books Are Magic—just be sure to specify you want a signed copy when you order. If ya still ain't sold, Michael Ian Black said some kind words about the book in the New York Times, and Dirtbag is now a New York Times bestseller. Also, if you’re a Walk It Off subscriber living in the UK, please know that the book became available there yesterday. Pick up a copy at your local bookshop and tell your friends!
As I mentioned back in April, Walk It Off will be moving at a slower pace this year. With that said, I couldn’t have possibly predicted (nor dared to dream) that Dirtbag, Massachusetts was going to take off in the way it has this past month. I am incredibly grateful. But I don’t want you worried that Walk It Off will sit stagnant for the rest of the summer. Or year! I’ve got some great walks coming your way—Stephanie Foo! Jason Diamond!—and promise you’ll be getting those soon. Thank you so much for your patience.
Ok, now that the logistics are out of the way, let’s get to this week’s question.
The last Walk It Off we did was with artist and graphic novelist/memoirist Leslie Stein. It’s a fantastic conversation (if you missed it, I highly recommend checking it out). Leslie talked about the many different jobs she’s had while tirelessly pursuing her art. That—plus Dirtbag, Massachusetts being about a few of the interesting jobs I’ve had over the years—got me wondering, what was one of the weirder jobs you’ve ever had? Let me know in the comments below! I miss y’all’s stories so, so much, so I can’t wait to read ‘em. And, like I said, more Walk It Off will be coming soon. Thank you, always, for your ongoing support. ❤️
Yours in walking, -Isaac
