I have met a lot of new people this week it happens when celebrations occur, and people flood from miles around and so with new people comes questions about the offshore husband, his ‘FIFO’ job, how we can do it and so on. As I have come to understand in my old age its curiosity now more than anything. Sometimes there is a judgement made other times understanding.
But a question that came up this week that I hadn’t had in awhile, it was the ‘we’ question. I hadn’t had the We question in years.
The conversation went like this after having said we work offshore.
“So you work offshore too?” She asked standing by the veranda railings.
