She gets dragged on jobs with her Daddy.
And sometimes they are not installing new, unused systems.
Sometimes they do maintenance on systems in use, systems that need trouble shooting, tweaking or filter cleaning.
On this day, they are checking and cleaning grease traps, which Rachel discovers is offensive to her nose.
Don’t feel too sorry for her though.
At the end of the day, she gleefully enumerated all the contraband her Daddy supplied her with to make the day palatable —
- breakfast at McDonalds made arising in the early dark and entering the cold a motivational experience
- lunch at a campground cafeteria they worked at
- an over-sized cinnamon bun from Stick Boys to make the long drive home a bit less tedious
She also saw 2 dogs, one Sid knew was named Nollie. Rachel took the liberty of naming the other dog Corey, because really, how can a girl pet and become acquainted with a dog without a name to address it? She also met a friendly cat who sat on her lap,. She named it Longtail, because . . . .well, she is a practical girl.
To top it all off, her lunch experience was enhanced by this fellow . . .
By her smiles, chatter and good cheer, I doubt Rachel thinks there is anything “poor” about being the daughter of a wastewater man.
