Jeff, What do you do for a living??

Lots of times people say to me: Jeff, What do you do for a living?? Is it related to foodstuff? I’ve kept it a secret for a while because I really don’t like to confuse my professional life with my food life, but so people don’t ask me anymore, I want to let it out once and for all what it is that I do.

When they first started making bike lanes, it was before this whole safety craze took hold of America. They stenciled in characters bicycles without naked heads. Apparently, it’s not politically correct anymore, so the DOT ordered every bike lane figure have a helmet on the cartoon. I won a government bid a while ago to put helmets on each drawing and I’ve been doing it for the past 3 years.

It allows me to explore the city at my leisure and find new restaurants, so that’s good.

So now you know.
