One Question Interviews: Humans

Robbie (Humans)

SPB: How does being in a band compare to being a forest fire fighter?

Robbie: Being in a band is somewhat similar to being a fire fighter.

Reason #1: In both jobs you have to carry lots of awkward things in awkward places. Firefighting wins out on this though, as the things are more awkward, as are the places you carry them. For instance: 

"Robbie, please take this massive helicopter net that is very tangled through that swamp and beyond into the 6-foot high thorn bush and wait for further instructions." 

"Yes Sir!"

25 minutes and 165 wounds on forearms and face later.

"Is this far enough?"

"No. take it even further."

Reason #2: You feel like a rock star when entering a new town. Again, firefighters win on this account as well though, because when you're entering the town, instead of 1 very tired friend with you, you have 20 chest thumping men and women who are burly and sexy and you all take over a bar and hotel for 3 days of "rest" from the fireline. It is here that you try and meet girls, end up getting in fights, eat hot food, make friends with the local coffee shop and usually end up helping the locals move, or painting a house or something. ROCK STAR STATUS
