Because I'm a huge fan of Roald Dahl's books for children (especially George's Marvelous Medicine), I decided to give his adult work a whirl. I'm about half way through "The Best of Roald Dahl" and I'm in love. His short stories are wonderful, wicked, and beautifully written. For instance, "Royal Jelly" is about a beekeeper and Dahl masterfully weaves this unusual profession into the plot. The beekeeper got me thinking about other interesting occupations. After a little research, I found this terrific list of thirty-seven weird jobs.
Some of my favorites include: dice inspector, dog food tester, golf ball diver, crocodile wrangler, and fortune cookie writer. Click here to view.
