    As the saying goes, Nobody’s perfect

  2. Aww! Don’t know what to say…maybe the child has had to face one question too many about what she’s going to do when she grows up and this was her way of protesting.

    You know RM, I have actually ended up being a nobody and it is true enough that nobody has any expectations from a nobody–but I cannot honestly say that I am happy being a nobody. I so want to be a somebody…
