A Defeated Twenty-Nine Year Old Woman: A Study In Six Frames
the subject begins with good intentions. new year - new you! she ceases all consumption of processed foods, sugars, grains, and alcohol. she runs daily. she begins wearing her retainer to fix an errant crooked tooth. she sleeps eight hours per night. this schedule endures for approximately twenty six days.
as a result, she endures excruciating head and tooth aches, dislocates her jaw while chewing a salad, inflames tendons in her foot, making it impossible to wear heels, ices her knee with a bag of peas on a daily basis, consists on a diet of eggs, salad and soup, does not finish any or all lesson plans or grading, and has a terribly unprepared day teaching algebra before losing all joy in life, shoving a half loaf of cheesy bread in her mouth, putting on an episode of friday night lights and drinking a damn beer.
