Pumpkin

This is kind of sad, but some of you may remember a post from quite awhile back where I expressed jealousy that a girl I knew from school, C, had landed herself a rich boyfriend who whisked her off, fairy tale style, offering to support her and indulge her every whim. I was jealous because I wanted someone to make my obligations disappear, to take my problems in hand and wave that wand and just dismiss them. It seemed like she was living the dream and it was a huge thorn in my side.

This morning I was on my way to the office when I spotted a familiar face from across the street. There was C, listening to her iPod, wearing business clothes in midtown Manhattan. What the fuck? I thought she was in a sunny foreign land, getting manicures and blowouts, and working part-time for an art gallery or something. But no. Turns out the dream went south and the prince dumped her for no apparent reason while she was studying for the bar exam. With no job, no place to live, and a huge bill from BarBri's home study program.

Maybe self-sufficiency is, in fact, the better route.

I blame it on the bar exam. It ruins dreams. :)

maybe she was dumped because she offered nothing to his fairy tale...
