Have you heard about the “Best job in the world”that is being offered by the Australian tourism board? It sounds too good to be true: get paid about $100,000 to take care of a tropical island in the off-season. Feed some turtles, do some snorkeling, make any needed repairs and post some blog updates. Minimal work for a lot of pay and no prior experience is required.
Hmmmm . . .
What if we replaced the island with Colorado mountains in the dead of winter and the tropical villa with a rambling, turn-of-the-century resort with a dark past? Sound familiar? Let’s hope the caretaker chosen isn’t easily manipulated by evil forces and doesn’t have a son who talks to his finger. Where’s Scatman Crothers when you need him?
Although, how funny would it be if the island caretaker posted a blog entry with nothing but, “all work and no play make Jack a dull boy” repeated over and over!
