Have you ever heard of the aphorism, "Procrastination is the thief of time "? I think it applies to me. I need to start thinking about a job for which I have apposite skills. I think it would appease my parents if I do so this summer. Otherwise, I'll have to make an apology to them for borrowing money again.
Should I be a chef? It would be fun to appease the appetites of hungry people. But I don't even know how to operate the simple appliances in my kitchen!
Maybe I can appraise property for a real estate company. How hard can it be to make an appraisal? But I'd have to be good at observing the appreciable differences between various properties.
Perhaps I should be a criminal lawyer. I could use my big sad eyes to appeal to the judges for mercy. However, I don't think my parents would appreciate my choice. Defending murderers and thieves would appall them.
What about being a policeman! I could apprehend criminals and put them in prison. I can imagine the warm feelings of appreciation I would get for saving someone's life. On second thought, I don't think I can be an applicant for a position that involves guns.
I could be a politician. I'd have the power to appoint people to positions of importance. But then I'd have to make really difficult decisions like how to apportion our limited water supply.
What I'd really like to be is an NBA basketball player like Michael Jordan. He's the apotheosis of athletes. Everyone applauds his amazing skills. But I should be more realistic, shouldn't I?
I think I’d better start with a simpler job. This summer, I'll submit an application to McDonald's!
