So many hats
I'm looking for a job. On a pretty regular basis Brae sends me job listings she finds on Craigslist and elsewhere.
Recently she was looking at a job posting for an assistant to a fashion designer. Brae started laughing as she read the description of the position.
"They said they want some someone who wears many hats. Hahaha."
I looked at her blankly and said "what's funny about that?"
She said "why do they need you to wear a bunch of a hats?"
After I finally stopped laughing and explained what the metaphor meant she said grumpily "that's a stupid saying."
I laughed some more and she said, "well, I thought it would be a good job for you since you have so many hats."
