    Indeed I would love a job such as that.

    I seriously had to google the meanings of more than half of the professions indicated in the OP. It hurt the confidence I have in English. Then again I made it a point not to stress myself too much to learn too many words. My ESTJ father advised me not to. The purpose of language son is to communicate effectively and to make the other person understand you irrespective of that person being an uneducated man or an overeducated professor, and not to show off and sound like a know it all pseudo-intellectual he said.

    @UniqueMixture you could be the town's seducer like Casanova! My lame Italian jokes continue. Coincidentally Casanova is Italian. Please watch this video. I hope it would make you laugh a little. Please note that my Italian stereotype jokes are friendly jabs and not insults.

    Not the gross dogs of medieval times. Crawling with plague-bearing fleas, mange rampant, undomesticated, wild, breeding mutts, and usually to kill them no less not to take them to the no-kill shelter where Sarah McLaughlin will sing about how much it sucks that they live in a cage instead of starving to death.

    In a medieval town there are no sceptics.

    And this is why typology central is not a medieval town because we tolerate sceptics - well, apart from personal insults, we tolerate sceptics.
