I didn’t love my grandmother’s work ethic, but I knew not to ﬁght it. I wouldn’t have had a chance. No matter my mood or circumstance, I worked. I worked at whatever job I could ﬁnd.
In the corner of the tent an enormous woman, her face beaded with sweat, stood over a boiling pot. Did we want a snout? No, thank you. As we saw the size and weight of the iron tools we’d have to haul, as the brawny workers belched and farted, we knew what we had to do—get the hell out. We were scared.
