Stage Whispers

Perel Grossman

I can’t go. I just can’t go. I mean, look at me! How can I go out in public looking like this? My bangs are totally grown out and I don’t have enough time to get a haircut. And I have nothing normal to wear.

No! NO!

No way I will step foot in the FCPR (Family Chanukah Reunion Party) in these shoes. Look at them! No, don’t look! Okay, look, but just for a second. They are hi-de-ous! The toes are rubbed out and curled upwards (the genie look), the soles are way hole-y, and they are SO last year’s style. Make that two years ago.

Despondent, I run down to the kitchen to drown my sorrows in a bowl of Apple Caramel Chocolate Crispies with twelve essential vitamins.
