Day 193: Ordeal by Innocence

I started babysitting when I was eleven but I consider my first job to have been taking care of an elderly lady down the street. I was twelve or thirteen at the time and I spent five hours at her house every Monday. I was paid ten dollars an hour which seemed like a fortune at the time. My duties included: microwaving her a frozen dinner, making tea, watching Roseanne, changing her diaper, and eventually emptying her catheter. I am pretty impressed with my thirteen year old self; I performed these undesirable tasks remarkably well.
