The Ideal Applicant?
“So, have you worked in a lighthouse before?”
“No, but I do believe I will be quite suitable for this position.”
“Okay. You’ll have to be up awake during the night and sleep when it’s day. Will that be a problem?”
“Not at all. I’ve been doing that for years.”
“Er, yes. I’m a night owl.”
“I see. How good are you at seeing in the dark? Sometimes you may have to look out across the sea.”
“I can see in the dark as though it was daylight.”
“Wow! Can you handle isolation?”
“Do you think you could do this job for long?”
“I’m certain I could do this job for many years. Many years.”
“Will getting the right foods be a problem?”
“Is there a township nearby?”
“Yes there’s one only a few miles away.”
“Well it sounds like you’re our best candidate.”
