Looking for the job of your dreams? Listen to this episode and you just might find it. Slow dialog: 1:22 Explanations: 3:33 Fast dialog: 19:34 Lorna: It’s great to be alive, isn’t it? Deangelo: What are you so happy about? Lorna: I’m just happy to come to work. Deangelo: What?! Lorna: I’ve come to realize that this is more than a job. It’s a vocation. I’m doing valuable work that I’m well suited for. Deangelo: Are you on something? Lorna: I’m high on life and my newfound sense of purpose. I realize that I’m doing this job because I have a calling and this is what I’m meant to do. Deangelo: I’m serious. Are you coming down with something? Lorna: Of course not. Yesterday, it occurred to me the legacy I’ll be leaving behind after my life’s work is done. Deangelo: Life’s work? Lorna: Yes, I’ll be remembered in posterity as someone who made a difference. Deangelo: You do remember what you do for a living, right? Lorna: I provide salve to people who need it. I give succor to those in need. Deangelo: You serve drinks in a bar. Lorna: I provide a shoulder to cry on, a calm voice in a crazy world. Deangelo: Talk about delusions of grandeur! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
