For those of you listening at home, I just wanted to share my dream job, listed here on craigslist. In case this is the future and that link no longer exists, or exists in some strange way that is uncomfortable, here is the job description:

This is, hands down, the best job I think I have ever seen. If I was rich, this is the job I’d do for fun. We knew a guy back doing archaeology named O-Dawg who worked on a golf course every sunday morning. He loved that job. He’d get up at 6, work outside until noon, and be home in time to watch TV and do whatever the hell else he needed to do. And he did that shit in NEW JERSEY, armpit of the universe. To do it in California? Pure. Unadulterated. Heaven.
Thanks for not taking that job with the oil companies when I was younger, dad. I could be rich right now, and working as a Golf Course Greenskeeper. Damn you!
