Putting the Bore in Labor Day

September 1, 2008

“Hey, does Samurai Cathy get to celebrate Labor Day even though she doesn’t really have a job?” I say.

“She’s got a job,” says Mikka. “She’s a ronin for hire. It’s just that no one’s hired her in a while.”

“Does she put that on her resume, ronin for hire?” I say. “Or does she have something else, like temporary samurai or ronin contractor?”

“I don’t know if she has a resume,” says Mikka.

“That might be her problem right there,” I say. “Employers want resumes, and references.”

“All Samurai Cathy’s references were killed,” Mikka says. “Probably by Ninja Vicki.”

And so Mikka and Samurai Cathy will be spending this Labor Day working on a scroll listing Cathy’s strengths and accomplishments as a samurai, as well as figure out who she can use as a positive reference for her mad bushido skills.
