    Jake's personal "writing advisor". It's what it'd say on my records, to hide the more indecent services I'd offer him.

    Season six onwards, I must stress.

    When I'm not doing my dock master duties (so I can watch all the pretty starships come and go), I'd like to test the holographic Malco (and his friend) from Jadzia's Hoobishian Baths program - but I'd probably end up being Vilix'pran's babysitter.

    I would probably end up getting a job cleaning up after the tribbles.

    Set up a book store nonfiction and fiction holographic and paper.

    Or maybe a library, might get to see occasional officers from Starfleet and Bajoran militia, heck during the show when the cardassians retake the station might try to get Cardassian books as well. Well if I'm human might not go well.

    I'd work with Garak in his "tailor shop."

    They only use that ship in the worst situations. It wouldn't be fun.

    Some security assignment I think. It would be great to work with Odo.

    Security or Tactical most likely.

    I give good Oo-mox, so I'd easily get a job as a Dabo boy.

    Dabo Girl Agent? Actually, a Bajoran religious bookshop and jewelry store would probably do very well on the Promenade. Third choice: work for O'Brien.

    I would be Leeta's very highly-trained, very esteemed, personal breast washer. There would be nothing inappropriate or lewd about it. I would have a task, and I would be very thorough, very professional, and I would love my job.

    ;)

    More seriously, I'd want to be in command of a Starfleet battle group, stationed at DS9, during the Dominion War. Or if it has to be a civilian job, then I'd probably want to run a Terran cuisine restaurant somewhere on the Promenade.

    Personally, I think I would most enjoy the Engineering side of things, I think me and Miles would get along fabulously.

    And people wonder why our female posters sometimes feel uncomfortable posting here. Oh wait, I know why. It's posts like this.

    Not cool. Please knock it off.

    Sorry if I made anyone feel uncomfortable (beyond you deciding to take offense *for* them). I was riffing on Lewis Black's bit about hiring a personal ball washer, mainly to see if anyone would recognize and call me on it. Though, I'm not sure how a bit of turnabout isn't fair play when we're in a forum for a show that regularly joked about women giving men (Ferengi) sexual pleasure by rubbing their ears, sometimes to manipulate them into doing things for them....

    Please don't push the issue. In case I wasn't clear enough, your post is exactly the kind of thing that has made our female members uncomfortable in the past. End of story. Please remember this when composing future posts.
