Source: Apprentice: Apprentice in prior centuries was the way to learn a trade to support oneself and the family.  Apprenticeships are still common in many countries.   To this day in North America in order to become a plumber, electrician or carpenter a person must spend a certain amount of time with someone licensed or certified in the field.  To become S physical therapist it is required you observe physical therapist first.  Apprenticeships do still exist but the terms are different.  Colonial times the apprentice also lived with the skilled tradesman and his family.  This is obviously rarely necessary in modern countries.   Perhaps it still necessary in less developed countries.  I’ve come to the end of my knowledge on this word.  Lucky you!

My husbands parents took out infant son for a night so we could have some time to ourselves and rest.  I got a little fixed up and put on the perfume I used to wear when we were dating.  I hadn’t worn it in probably 3 years.  When he came home from leaving the baby at his parents I gave him a hug and kiss.   While we were hugging my husband started having a severe asthma attack.  Allergies change.  He’s allergic to that perform.  So I have to shower while he uses inhalers and allergy medicine. Goodnight.
