Because I love you, I collected some of my favorite posts about work I read this week. These ladies each articulate something hilarious, heartbreaking, and ultimately powerful about work. I am inspired by their stories as I work my way through my own. I am also thinking of all the songs I know about work– 9 to 5, Take This Job and Shove It, Woman’s Work (sniff, sniff), I’ve Been Working on the Railroad. How come songs about work aren’t happier? Notwithstanding, of course, the dwarves’ classic Whistle While You Work, which I actually do, even though a co-worker somewhat subtly suggested I STOP WHISTLING BECAUSE IT’S ANNOYING.
What’s your favorite work ditty? Let’s make a mix.
