Indianapolis GM Liz Lohman was presented with an opportunity to make someone’s day and she seized it all the way. Each year during Autism Awareness Month when our teams decorate their dining rooms with blue puzzle pieces and collect donations for Autism Speaks, we often hear from thankful families who live with the realities of spectrum disorders every day. Likewise, Liz encountered a 5-year-old whose birthday dream was to become a superhero. As he had been diagnosed with autism the year prior, his mom thought the perfect superhero cape for her son would be the autism-themed cape hanging in Liz’s Castle in honor of Autism Awareness Month. His mom inquired about purchasing it, but Liz took charge and made some birthday magic. She invited the family in for a special dinner and made his wish come true by gifting him the superhero cape.

The expression day job is often used for a job one works in order to make ends meet while performing low-paying (or non-paying) work in their preferred vocation. Archetypal examples of this are the woman who works as a waitress (her day job) while she tries to become an actress, and the professional athlete who works as a laborer in the off season because he is currently only able to make the roster of a semi-professional team.
