It actually was a dream but I really like it.

I was in charge of large qualities of new yarn. My job was to feel and come up with the color names for each yarn.

I think I was the Quality Assurance Director.

I used to work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and there was a guy whose JOB it was to come up with and name the color for the entrance-fee button of the day. Each day they used a different color. He named them very creatively, e.g., Elysium, Ambrosia, etc. This was not a dream, it was real. So dream on!

I did have my dream job gor 12 years. I worked at a reptile rescue dealing with all kinds of exotic animals from lizards and snakes to marmosets. Unfortunately due to needing a better wage I had to move on, but I still miss it everday.

Sometimes it's fun to read the names on the nailpolish bottles while I'm waiting for my turn at the salon. My favorites have been "Strike a pose Rose" and "Kartoom Khaki", although "Absolutely Mauvelous" was cute as well. Where do you get a job like this?

You got to work at MOMA. Sounds like a very dreamy job.

It WAS dreamy. Now I have moved from NY to FL but I still remember those days so fondly... sigh.

Wow!! That meant that you could have viewed Van Gogh's "Starry Night" every day!! (Among other great art masterpieces, of course).

Metropolitan Museum Of Art! I was first introduced to it by an aunt in 1942 and it became my dream to get myself locked in after hours so I could roam all night. The first thing we saw was the statue of David and my Aunt Milly said," You won't tell your Mother about that, will you." It was a rare treat to go back every few years. Now my grand daughter is working in the art field and hopes to become a querator( SP mind has gone blank) someday. Edith
