The Country Music Awards ceremony is on TV as I sit here and look at this blank Blogger screen, and right now Reba McEntyre
is singing with Big and Rich. I don't even care what they're singing; I'm just delighted that the sight of Reba reminds me of something I can write about tonight.

In the early '90s, when I worked in human resources, a young man came to my office for a job interview. He was wearing jeans and a T-shirt emblazoned with a picture of Reba McEntyre. To break the ice, I asked, "So, are you a big Reba fan?"

"Well," he answered, "I'm trying to be."

I ended up hiring him. At least he had some kind of a goal.


  1. That's pretty funny! I don't think I would wear a shirt with someone on it that I had to try to be a fan of... LOL!

  2. Funny! I'd have hired him too!

  3. Creekhiker and Janet, thank goodness he wasn't applying for a rocket scientist position.
