Would being a nanny suit me? Would spending time with kids each day, from end of school through dinner enhance my life? Would it give me the pleasure of interacting with youth? Would being a sort of surrogate grandparent round out my life? What about loyalty? It would be a more personal commitment than working at a coffee shop where you can call in sick, right? But, it would be pleasant work, and local work. I could see riding my bike to work, giving some art lessons, listening to stories. What if I didn't like the kids? Then you'd quit.
