My boss refuses to use No. 2 pencils. Says he was traumatized by too many standardized tests. Today’s his first $50,000,000 trial. That’s why I’m scouring the neighborhood looking for No. 1’s. Who sells No. 1 pencils? Not Walgreens. I went to Mt. Holyoke for this?
$100,000 in student loans. $500,000 mortgage. $24,000 tuition for the boy. Twice that next year when the girl starts. $50 mil trials separate the men from the boys. Win and I get to keep busting my ass to reach partner. Lose and I’m stuck working for the city. Damn! Just broke my last pencil.
