Chess at Work

Hi everybody! I'm still circling, but this time with Mikhail Tal's Winning Chess Combinations. It's such an awesome book you have no idea. It's the perfect follow-up to 7 circles of CTB. Anyways, I'm back in the blogosphere to get everybody's opinion on something...

What's the best job to have so you can play chess all day? The only thing that comes to mind is to be a security guard at a low profile site. I was also thinking maybe to be a head librarian of a small historic library. Does anybody have any ideas? Because I'm getting in trouble a little too much at my job for playing chess. Now nobody there knows I play chess or am even interested in it, but after I complete my work for the day I never "take the initiative" and "create more work for me to do" blah blah blah. Like I care if I'm good at my dead end job or not. 5 or 10 years from now I will not remember my near minimum wage salary keeping me and my wife's head slightly above water. I will remember all the hours I spent there honing my skills as a badass chessplayer manifested in beautiful combinations over the board.

So I ask all of my fellow Knights and chess bloggers, what is the perfect job for an improving chess player?

Winner of the best answer will receive a pdf file of Mikhail Tal's Winning Chess Combinations via email!
