I'm a mason's helper. I'm not really an apprentice 'cause I'm not all that into it. I just needed a job that pays well. I'm a good hard worker who shows up everyday, and I'm not hungover or all drugged out from the night before so I can really contribute to my boss's bizniz.
I moved out to the boonies from the big city ten years ago and good paying jobs are scarce. I did a few jobs before landing this one last year. This is the first one that pays anywhere near well.
I'm 50 years old and this job kicks my @$$. It's hard heavy labor and I'm just a skinny ****. The only real prob is it cuts into my practice time. I get up around 4 - 4:30 am just so I can get in a couple hours. Too tired after work. (OK OK -- cut the violins pls!)
I'm the bass player - I'm yer best friend!
