"And Besides The Wench Is Dead..."

And the reason why I don't want to tell people what I used to do for a living?

It's because they're likely to want me to explain myself further. If you say, "I used to be a bank manager" or "I used to be a supermarket cashier" the conversation ends there. Those things don't need further unpacking. But if you say "I used to be a priest..."

When pressed further I used to say "I lost my faith." But that was a bit of an evasion. If I were to answer now I might say "I needed room to breathe".

Beyond that it gets complicated and- besides- all this stuff is so old...
