The hope for work

A new assignment. I've got one, and I've needed one. This new one starts Wednesday; we'll see how it goes. Before that, I'll go to the temp agency office tomorrow for a drug test. I'm guessing Hunter S. Thompson never took a drug test for any of his jobs, but anyway...

Time for the usual concerns as to whether I'll adapt well and quickly to new work, and a new environment, and a new set of co-workers...but c'mon, I've done all sorts of paid work for 21 of my near-41 years. I CAN DO THIS. I hope. It's good to be nervous, right?
