Nothing really comes to mind that I would never do...I am interested in many things, and was quite flexible in my work career. Mostly, I was a cytotechnologist, which is a branch of health care concerned with cancer tests...where I was an instructor at two major universities!
But another job I really enjoyed also, was janitor...I did it for only a few months, however, the night shift hours were too difficult even though the pay was fine. Since I was so thorough and careful (which meant also I was slow), I was given the administrative floor of the SeaFirst Building in Seattle. I remember the ashtrays were exquisitely beautiful blue crystal, and everything there was fine wood or crystal, beautiful artwork, all for the SeaFirst Board members...I enjoyed that.
The limiting factors for me have not been the kind of work, but more the integrity involved. I have gotten into trouble when things were unethical such as one prestigious cytology position I remember 1967, but racism was going on...I got fired. Also I don't do well with power games...I tend to just not 'get it,' can't figure it out. So those are my limits more than the kind of work.

I like to bake, and my dream was always to open a little coffee shop where I would bake wonderful goodies both delicious and healthful too...I still have lots of recipes, and enjoy making them regularly here at home...you would probably like my Claudia Roden orange almond cake, it is very special! So at my shop, people could come in on their lunch hour and oh it would be so congenial and fun, enjoying the wholesome wonderful treats would make everybody so happy!
Here in Tenino, there is a coffee shop like that with nice atmosphere, except the baked goods are stale and loaded with sugar/white flour...sometimes I think maybe I will go in and offer to help them out. I am only 75 y/o, lots of time yet so I am still thinking about it...a nice way to round out an adventuresome life with lots of diverse experience!
