A Game We Play

Jilda and I often play a game when we travel. It’s called what do they do for a living? We take a random couple and without asking them any questions, we have to guess what they do for a living.
It’s a fun game that often ends up deep in right field in the tall grass, but that’s what we do.
We did that today. We saw a couple on the beach. He was rotund and she had big hair. I guessed that he was a coach and she was a healthcare. 
Jilda guessed that he was a plumber and that she was a teacher. Normally, she’s very good at this game, but not today.
As it turns out, they were trying to take a photograph of themselves and I asked if they’d like me to shoot the picture of them.
They were grateful. Just for kicks, I asked where they were from. As it turns out, they were from Georgia. He was a police officer in a small community and she was a nurse.
Chalk 1/2 point up for the home team. 
Tomorrow, we’ll be back to our regular posting schedule.
