What do I do for a living....?

The answer depends on the circumstances and who is doing the asking...

For instance...at parties...I tell the ladies i am Boudiour talent scout.

At the same parties, I tell the guys I am a psychiatrist...

I have found, no other 'occupation' clears the room of blokes so quickly....... Laughing

I reply something along the lines of "I work in pest control, specialising in dinosaurs"

When people reply "But arent they extinct?" I have to say "Yup, I was far too good at my job."
