A while back, Robb met with a vocational counselor whose task it was to assess Robb's employability. One of the things that came out of this meeting was a rather entertaining list of potential job.
The fact that Robb has to lay down repeated throughout the day, makes employment a bit tricky. Additionally, Robb walks best when waist deep in warm water, and cannot pick things up off the floor without using some kind of a grabby-stick tool.
So, for a while, we were pondering the options of having Robb become an Amazonian field biologist, preferably with loads of assistants.
But then we saw an interesting documentary about the Greek Sponge Divers in Tarpon Springs Florida, and we realized that this could be the perfect job. Robb could walk -- slowly -- along the bottom of the tropical ocean, and use his long handled rake to harvest sponges. I could sell the sponges to all of my scenic and decorative painter buddies. And we could be working in nature.
Since sponge diving is very dangerous, and lots of the divers become paralyzed by the bends, Robb would fit right in with all the old diver guys.
What do you think? Should we move to a sponge diving community and buy a little boat?
