I heard this expression very often and even said it often myself. Now that I am out, I realize this isn't always the case. There were many times I was going out in service Saturday morning and couldn't wait for 12:00 to come along so that we could go swimming, bicycling, play basket ball, go to the beach...
I now realize that most of the my good days were cut in half.
12:00 : Stop field service and bring everyone to their house or car
12:40: Get back home and change
13:00: Cook and have lunch
13:30: Prepare stuff for the beach
14:00: Leave for the beach
14:30: Arrived at the beach (Packing lot)
15:00: Finally settled with everything on the beech.
19:00: Beach closes.
Oh, but we went to the beach and posted happy photos of us on facebook.. see, we're normal!
