I think I need an assistant.
I’m finding it difficult to juggle the demands of writing this sentence with watching Adam Richman scarf down an entire family of four on Man v. Food.
I want to be able to explore the craters my tonsils left in the back of my throat. For instance maybe I can top my marbles-in-the-mouth record of 47.
And I need all my brain storage to come up with the perfect name for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s baby. So far, I’m stuck on Kool-Aid.
But am I big enough to warrant an assistant?
When I lived in Los Angeles for three seconds, I nearly interned with a fledgling Second City outfit. I was looking for some comedic writing experience and a chance to get out of my routine of crying in my apartment. The random guy only wanted someone to tally up his personal frequent flyer miles. Even though he was the only employee with no future prospects, he still needed an assistant.
Hugo, the half-man puppet, has five assistants solely to shine his bald head.
And Le Clown’s getting one.
I recognize I’m not as one-ab’d or clown-like as his Magnificence™, but I am scheduled to interview Le Clown’s peen so that must count for something.
Still, would anyone be willing to work for me for the lowly salary of nothing and the 100% probability of recaping the latest season of Honey Boo Boo?
Well, holy shitballs, it turned out there was!
I recently received this email:
“Excellent beat ! I would like to apprentice whilst you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a blog web site? The account aided me a applicable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered brilliant clear idea”
How soon can you start?
Now, granted, I wasn’t planning to amend my “web site” and I don’t really broadcast anything, but I think this person knows what the Speaker7 brand® is all about.
Who is this person?
Why the Lap Dance Factory, of course!
I went to Lap Dance Factory’s “web site” and I really believe my account “aided (it) a applicable deal.”
Lap Dance Factory left an address that specifically directed me to this:
Could this object help the Speaker7 brand®?
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful apprenticeship.
