1. It's nice to have a steady paycheck...I mean really nice...and you miss it and remember it fondly!
2. You discover who your friends are...they are the ones who can still make eye contact when you say..."I am afraid and I am worried." They also don't say things like "Your unemployed and your over 50!"
3. You gain ten pounds...I don't know why... but you do.
4. You have to fight...I mean fight... the desire to nap for a reaaaaaalllllly long time.
5. You are grateful...really grateful when you do find work and you pray for others who are looking for work...because you have been there!
