So - I finally found a job here in Ann Arbor. It’s with UMich, in the health system real estate department,and this month is my first work anniversary. So, I’ve been here a year, more or less (I temped in this job for six months before being hired full time). It’s been a long, tough … Continue reading SG/NT June 2017: Working and Gothing
We are talking about soft drinks here, not...other things. “Coke”, in the South, covers a variety of fizzy soft drink products. Northerners do not know this.
