Produce Girl.

Screen Shot 06-10-16 at 07.19 PM The 17 YR old got a job! She now works at the produce dept. at the grocery store part-time. Her tasks so far have been skinning watermelons and cutting up thousands of strawberries,and making fruit salads for customers. She was handing out job resumes when a call came in before she’d even returned back home  that they wanted her for an interview and then said she was hired; the manager was “impressed” with her resume and she started work the very next day! She was surprised how quick it was and said, “Life can’t be THAT easy!” but for *some* people it actually is…..not for me, of course….but for some people, or so I’ve heard,anyway. I have no doubt it’s because she’s pretty and the manager is male.(I hope he doesn’t “hit” on her, though, at least that’s something I, being ugly, never had to worry about happening to me but pretty girls always have to watch out for) It’s no secret that life and opportunities just open up for pretty people, and that life comes easy for them, doors open up for them, and they just seem to live “charmed” lives and they “sail” thru life easily. I, however, am the exact opposite; nothing has EVER come “easy” for me, and everything has always been a struggle and nothing ever goes right for me. She likes her new job, at least so far anyway, and her plan is to work a YR and then go to university next YR.

As well, yesterday she went to Canada’s Wonderland theme/amusement park with Cadets and the 13 YR old was supposed to go,too, except she had her dance recital that day. She hated her costume, which was black and yellow and reminded me of a bumble-bee and I thought looked cute, and I touched up my hair dye and blonde is a tricky colour to get just right as you don’t want it to end up a “trashy” blonde or brassy, and the trick is to leave the bleach on for just the right time; if you don’t leave it on long enough it will end up “coppery” and red instead of blonde when you put the dye on,but if you leave it on for too long your scalp will start to burn and your hair could fall out……by now I have timed out down to an exact science…
