Ah, the dream job for you ...
Peter Jordan is hardly working!

The host of the weekly "It's a Living" show explores some truly fun and unique things people do and get paid for!

How 'bout it gals? For one night, Peter joined "Farmer's Daughter" as a fourth in an all female trio and fulfilled all his obligations including the "touching breasts" ritual before the concert (no hands) -- which was a bit of a squat for tall Peter.

Peter has even starred as an alien corpse in the X-Files. He had to lie still and naked for hours while the camera crew did take after take!

As a Mother's Day florist, Peter peeks into finding the best flowers in the world for customers who in turn give them to their mothers.

As a timpani player, Peter carefully counted his beats bars to ensure that he pounded proper rythmns to classics played by a symphony orchestra.

A virtual star hockey player (number 49 on some team?) in a video game, Peter endured body checks and bruises and offered a lot of audio grunts and groans to help video game programmers to produce the motion required for a hockey player in a video game.

Peter has also dangled from a rescue helicopter, skated short track, shouldered a musket at Fortress de Louisbourg, salvaged logs on the BC coast, figured out bagpipes and helped plan a wedding that was all pride for the bride!

If you are looking for a little chuckle along with some inspiration into what you would like to do with your life, you should tune in to this one, Mondays at 7:30 p.m. on CBC TV!
