  1. A friend of ours who is a contractor once confided in us that most roofers are felons and ex-cons. Seriously, it takes a certain person with a flair for defying death to do roofing. We actually rely upon illegal (we think; we didn't ask them for papers; indeed, we didn't ask anything since we didn't speak Chinese and they didn't speak English) aliens to do our roof work.

    On the other hand, my ex-boyfriend from college (who is sort of "the one who got away" for me, scarily enough) reportedly became a roofer in middle age. As a mutual friend reported, "It wasn't working out being an artist, so he asked himself, 'What can I do?' Since he's not afraid of heights, he thought, 'I can be a roofer.'"
