Girl who dances in a cage

When did I become the boss?

I had the freakiest experience today. I interviewed one of my potential instructors. Of three that are ready to start training with me, she is the only one without previous teaching experience of any kind. So I thought it would be a good idea to sit down with her to determine how comfortable she would be taking control of a group of 6 girls for hours at a time.

It was freaky because my entire life I have always been the one being interviewed, not the one doing the interviewing. And having temped for so many years, I was interviewing almost constantly. Through reading and experience, I became quite the expert at it and always knew just the right answers to every question. It got to the point where I could land jobs I wasn't even qualified for. But now with it reversed, and me doing the interviewing, it was like the entire universe was turned upside down (or at least flipped in reverse). How odd to become an expert interviewee only to end up being the one who does the hiring and the interviewing. What has the world come to?
