Response to Ignorance is bliss

 

My summer job when I was a teen was working for Smucker's cannery. It sucked! I had to take Dramamine to keep from getting motion sickness from the conveyor belts, and that would make me sleepy. And when they would stop the belt I would fall over and off the platform. Dizzy! Oy!

But, I digress...I was among many, many people who sorted those berries that were made into jams and jellies. We took out all the green ones, moldy ones, and all the bugs, frogs, and leaves and twigs. And if someone did get motion sick the whole section was closed down and cleaned and sanitized. For your protection, of course!

(Should we go back to talking about bikes? Mark Twain? Anything?)
