Snake Charmer Hireling
Was out drinking one night, depressed at how his life as a ranch hand was so boring, wishing he could follow his dream of being a professional snake charmer when a highly drunk man without a shadow next to him started rambling on about how much work taking care of his collection of poisonous snakes were.
Sam realized this was his chance to follow his dream. He convinced the man to hire him for the same pay he was making on the ranch to take care of his snakes and even collect venom. Then he convinced the man again of the same things in the morning when he finally work up sober after two weeks of binge drinking. By then Sam had already been taking care of the snakes for a few days.
