Too bad i don't have enough money for any of those ingredients. ftw

So it is a sure good ting that I gotta new job today. I decided that since I won't be living here much longer then I ought to stop stressin about working in a hoity toity salon where all I do is clean up after everyone and their dog and that I should start working in perhaps a chop shop.
So after school today I got my act together and headed to good old polo park with nine resumes in hand. I went begrudgingly to some salons that I used to go to when I was a wee pre-teen when I would desperately ask for chunks of golden blond streaks and for the monica lewinsky hair cut. They all turned me away as I was not finished school or they had no room in the inn. Disappointed, I started walking out the doors and glanced over to the little hole-in-the-wall "Manhattan Hair,' the very salon that I passed on the way in and said no way jose to. I went to the front desk where a big breasted black lady named Sheila was sitting filing her nails...

Sheila- Yesss ma child

Me- Hi i'm Chelsea and i was wondering how your apprenticeship program works at your salon? Do you start off with cleaning?

Sheila- Mhm. An is that what you went to school for? Cleanin?

Me- No

Sheila- Then why you tink I make a pretty girl like u clean. No body clean round here. They work!

Me- Oh wow, yes that makes sense.

Sheila - Mhmmmm. Ana wut school ara you from chilldd?

Me- MC College

Sheila- Really, that school dont sen me gyals no mo. its a good ting you came alla by yertself, you know how to give a good clipper girl?

Me- Yes mam.

Sheila- You got your own set o clippers girl?

Me- Yes mam.

Sheila- Combs?

Me- Yep

Sheila- Gel, mousse, straightening iron, curling iron, capes, brushes, scissors, mirrors?

Me- Yes'm

Sheila -(puts file down and picks up rhinestone encrusted agenda) Well den girl, you be in luck today, I got one chair available for you. You come on Saturday 9 in tha mornin and you get ur clients right away.

Me- Uh yes please that would be great.

Sheila- ok see you den child. don forget yo clipppers.

So yah. Basically today was the best day of my life. I think I am gona have to best time ever working at this place. Sorry if this bored you, but I never wanna forget this convo and sometimes p&p is my life diary that i like to record shiat on OK OK no haters. I know Fanay will like this.

To celebrate I blended up myself a daquiri and somehow my juice box straw ended up in my magic bullet. Still poor and not wanting to waste the three strawberries or the 2 ounces of vodka, I am going to finish it while spitting out tiny bits of plastic onto my couch.
