Mods, relocate as needed.

As you may or may not know, my day job is custom wood and metal fabrication. That's fancy talk for carpenter and blacksmith, and until 2009 I was a licenced contractor. Work's been slow. :0/

As a consequence, I took a job at a local theme park, helping build their annual Halloween Haunt. Lo and behold, I was assigned to the theater, where I was tasked with (among other things) building a certain simple, but critical, appliance into the downstage floor. In an irreverent side note, I earned a new nickname from my boss, because, in his words, "(I'm) a carpenter who does Magic!"

At any rate, I had the privilege of helping build the stage on which Ed Alonzo will be performing. Mr. Alonzo, 'break a leg!'

I mean no disrespect to anyone or any belief system, and do note that the nickname was bestowed, not chosen. The scene shop lead decided to call me "Jesus."

When I was a kid, my dad called me "*** it" all the time. Some of my friends had the same problem...Go figure.
