“I wish my job was being a bricklayer”

with 4 comments

Everyone’s like, “Oh, you have a cushy life—you just sit around and write.” I’m like, “No, it’s actually really hard.” As I like to say, I wish that my job was being a bricklayer—because I would lay the bricks, the wall would be built, and that would be it. Nobody could deny that it’s a fucking brick wall. Nobody’s gonna come along and say, “Mmm, I think that brick should be over here.”
