About this Book

Print Excerpt


Someday, I’d like to work in something glamorous myself, but I don’t know exactly what … The trouble is, I just don’t get school. The only subject I scrape by in is Art and Design. That’s better than nothing, but I don’t think sticking leaves onto drawing paper is going to be a big help for my future. Whatever, I just don’t want to end up behind a fast food counter, smiling all the time and asking customers: ‘Would you like a drink? Regular or supersized? Eat in or to go? For or against abortion?’ And getting blasted by my supervisor if I serve a customer too many fries because he smiled at me… You never know, that guy could have been the man of my dreams. If I would give him a discount on his McMeal, he’d have taken me to eat at a swank steakhouse,, asked me to marry him, and we’d have lived happily ever after in his 5-room to-die-for apartment.
