Just finished Under the Dome and Chapter II of my online class with WHO (World Health Organization). I will need to repeat the chapter, I didn't do so well with it, has me completely discombobulated. Trying to learn how to code Neoplasms (cancer) not easy!

I need the outfits for a class I am attending in Helena and I have to dress professionally...no, not the world's oldest profession... That I could pick on my own.

I've often, well, not really that often, wondered how that came to be known as the world's oldest profession. What is that based on? You would think the fire starter would be the oldest profession, although I suppose that one isn't around anymore. Not unless you count the Zippo factory in Bradford, PA.
What about food taster? That has to be an old line of work and one I'm sure still exists.

Good question, Pac. It was the first thing, that was not a necessity, that had a monetary value??? Dunno, your guess is as good as mine.

I'm thinking "Hunter". Above everything else, people had to eat.

We know it's the world's oldest profession because it came out of the world's oldest excuse, "Not tonight, I have a headache.".

Get two different skirts and two different tops yet they are interchangeable. That way you will get four outfits. Then drag out your scarfs and other accessories.

That doesn't count as a profession. You hunt for yourself and family. If you hunted for others who paid you for the kill, that would be a profession.
