Someday, Id like to work in something glamorous myself, but I dont know exactly what The trouble is, I just dont get school. The only subject I scrape by in is Art and Design. Thats better than nothing, but I dont think sticking leaves onto drawing paper is going to be a big help for my future. Whatever, I just dont 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, hed have taken me to eat at a swank steakhouse,, asked me to marry him, and wed have lived happily ever after in his 5-room to-die-for apartment.
