Reader's Diary #1327- Liz Betz: Second Job

The perspective in Liz Betz's "Second Job" is an interesting one as it follows a man named Henry, but focuses on his wife, Bonny. Bonny has newly joined the retired ranks of Henry and his friends and Henry is fretting that it's not going well.

The gender divide was a bit fun to watch, especially how Henry takes on the cliched role of husband who just wants to fix things rather than just listen and give Bonny the chance to figure out this new stage of her life.

It may not be the most thrilling of tales, but it's a nice slice of domesticity.
