Hello Friends! I’m your Snuggler Buggler Cuddler Befuddler! Are you lonely? Do you suffer from skin-to-skin hunger? Are you in need of some Spooning Fine-Tuning? The answers to all your problems are just one touch away atop my cozy, comfy couch! Simply give me a call and for $80 an hour, we’ll laze around together on the sofa watching Netflix Black Mirror episodes. Benefits to you include lower blood pressure, reduction of stress/anxiety, as well as an instant mood boost. Requests for me to wear my Hello Kitty jammies will be honored at an additional charge.
That would be my commercial if I were certified in the up-and-coming cathartic career in caressing called a “Cuddle Collaborator.” Yes this really IS a thing, folks. And lest you think this is just Cuddling Camouflage for Coquettish Courtesans, let me point out that the Cuddling Code of Conduct constitutes a NO SEXUALITY clause. Yep, you can confirm all of this right HERE — as well as watch a humorous short video that consolidates and cancels all your cuddling concerns because cuddling calamities can cause catastrophes!
If you prefer your snuggling to take place in larger groups (just like litters of kittens, but not nearly as cute) with music and food, you should come to a Cuddle Party right HERE.
Would I lie about this stuff?? I even ordered one to come to my house for an interview to see for myself.
ME: Come in, have a seat at my kitchen table.
PRO CUDDLER: Oh we need a horizontal surface. Chairs are bad Snuggle Feng Shui.
ME: Well the thing is, we’re gonna cuddle long distance– and by that I mean you’re not gonna lay so much as a finger on me, but I’m gonna ask you questions.
The Pro Cuddler left in a huff when I made ear-whispers, arm stroking, and hair ruffling also off limits.
By now it must be obvious that I’m absolutely incredulous this could be a real thing in our society. But no amount of coaxing, coercing, convincing, or cajoling will ever get me to do ANY of this touchy/feely stuff because my motto can be classified with MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This!”
However…..someone obviously put their thinking cap on and thought of ways to make money doing something that requires little training, effort, and investment capital, which in turn inspires me to brainstorm other easy career options as well.
A Nagologist — Oversleeping on weekend mornings? Forgetting to do those pesky chores? For $120 I will arrive at your home with lists of tasks in hand that you should be doing around your house and yard. Just say the word and it can carry over into your personal appearance as well — because nobody is as highly trained as to when you should wear a jacket or get your hair out of your pretty face, as I am.
A Clockationer — Your time is valuable and I do things with clocks that are earth-shattering and life-altering. For $1,000 you’ll get my services year-round. Simply provide me with a key to your home and unbeknownst to you, I’ll occasionally sneak in and set all your clocks ahead by thirty minutes. Imagine arriving places with perfect punctuality, or even a few minutes early for once in your life! Conversely, when you’d rather skip an appointment you’re dreading, I’ll set your clocks back by two hours so you’ll have no chance. This is an idea whose time has come!
A Complimentician — Plagued by low self-esteem? Raised by overly critical parents? Feeling under appreciated at work or by your spouse? I have 150 different ways of applauding you while saying, “Great job!” You’ll feel like a million bucks for just under 100. Never again will you be taken for granted and my *gratitude for you (as a person!) will know no bounds. (*I’ll be extra grateful if you pay me under-the-table in cash.)
An Imaginarian — Feeling bored? Life too predictable? Yearning for the excitement you see in movies? For $99, I’ll bring my overactive imagination in tow along with my unique hypothetical scenarios that will make you feel young, vibrant, and alive again. Each hourly session starts out with me probing, “What if?” For instance, “What if . . . you found out your committed, honest spouse was actually having a secret affair? Your child, (a straight A student) was good at covering up his cocaine addiction? Your doctor’s blood pressure cuff hasn’t been calibrated in years and you really have 160/110? Just think! (No gratuity tips necessary.)
A Blogchiatrist — For $300, I’ll put your blog into psychoanalysis, specifying what your theme is covertly conveying, your language and vocabulary is subliminally suggesting, what gruesome thoughts your accompanying photo images are conjuring up, and report back with a thorough critique of the number one reason many of your readers are not returning for more. After you’re feeling clinically depressed about everything you’re doing wrong, I’ll give you a bonus complimentician and nagology session, followed up by an imaginarian and clockation hour. But wait, there’s more! I’ll take you into my figurative bed, wrap my metaphoric arms around your shoulders, and give you an all-day comforting symbolic cuddle at no extra charge!
Dear Readers: What jobs can you think up that nobody needs, but everybody wants to read about?? Leave one in the comments.
A Dreamologist. For $100 I’ll analyze your dreams with a positive spin if your an optimist or a negative spin if you’re a pessimist. I can turn them into nightmares for a small extra charge if you’re a masochist.

Fantasist – unlike the Imaginarian (who points out things that are all too likely to happen), the fantasist will fill your head with those rosy possibilities that will never happen to you. “You’re going to win the biggest lottery in the history of lotteries.” “You will never again be infected by the common cold.” “Want a parking space downtown? Of course, there’s one available.” “Your teenage offspring will be uncomplaining, cheerful, open, honest, and grateful.” “That single sock you’ve been saving for the last year? Today, you will find its mate.”
Yes, yes and yes!!! This is the perfect career path for my ex!

Awww thank you Margie! Does that mean I get the job?? ;-).
Absolutely! But I can only pay you in cuddles 😉
I would just “like” your comment but my app seems to have lost the like button on comments. 😦 Have a super day.
Haha. So in other words now we’re kinda like those couples who go, “You hang up first. No YOU hang up first.” Lol. Definitely no need to like or comment back on this particular one. I can just feel you’re out “there.” 😉
Well it seems you could make yourself very useful at inducing insanity.

Yes I’ve been tenured at this job, Young Marissa! There’s even a tension-pension. 😉
