Coffee Break [24/1/22]

I got nothing, Deadsplinters. And that means it’s quiz time. I had to Google some of the places and objects before I could answer all of the questions. But you’re smarter than me.

What Would Your Medieval Job Be?

I got


You’re the chef of the medieval world, making only the most delicious food for the people of your area! There’s nothing you can’t cook, from a simple cereal to a more complex serving of meat. You serve everyone from the peasants to the king, who demands only the finest food. You don’t mind “delivering” on this!

Have a great Monday.



    • This is an ironic role for me.  Back in the day, late 1800s, the Korean Emperor (Japanese or Chinese puppet) claimed that my great great grandpa was a tax cheat and sent a tax collector to collect it (turns out that it was someone else with the same name.)  Tax collection in late 1800s Korea was something akin to mafia tax collection, lots of torture and terror.

      Anyway, the tax collector, his goons and the informer wandered into area where my great great grandpa lived and were ambushed by 30-50 pissed off relatives led by my great grandpa who beat the snot out of them, stripped them naked and sent them back to the royal court.  My family spent the next decade or so hiding from police and soldiers till the Japanese deposed the Emperor/ took over in 1894.

      Tax collector…. ha.

  1. I got tax collector too. Are there only two jobs in this medieval scenario? And, recognizing a “personality test” when I see one (they’re all frauds) I opted, mostly truthfully, for the most outgoing answers, hoping I would get “Popular Benevolent Monarch.”

  2. Also a baker. Apparently, whoever made this quiz didn’t bother to put more than 2 jobs in for the results!

    Side note: I love history and do a lot of reading about everything from the Romans to the Renaissance. Had I been born in ancient times, I wouldn’t be here. My mother and I would most likely have died during my birth because I was “stuck” and she had to have an emergency c-section. Had I survived that, I would likely have died as a child because I was a sickly little kid and I was constantly on antibiotics for something or other. Had I survived THAT, I would definitely have died from the terrible ear infection I had a few years ago that turned into mastoiditis (which is where the bones of the skull behind the ear get infected and, if untreated with antibiotics, can lead to brain inflammation and death). So, basically, I’m really glad I live in modern times, despite my fascination with history and how dearly I would love to live in a castle!

    • Third occupation found: I changed some answers and unearthed this possibility. I think I’ll stick with baker.

      You Got:


      No, we’re not talking about your name! Building the city that you live in is no easy task. You have structure in your day, and you also make sure that it is in your work. You’re great at working with your hands, and you have high standards of both quantity and quality. You have to make your living, but you also have to do it right, after all!

    • You’re welcome Lol, I honestly couldn’t think of anything else to post. It can be difficult to come up with non political fluff these days.


      Anyone who’s like to take a stab at a Coffee Break or Happy Hour pm me. Or if you come across an interesting story you want me to post.  😊
