Naomi

Seen on the Purple Line to Linden at about 8:45 a.m. 

Naomi knew she was too hot for Epic Burger. A girl like her deserved a retail job, at least. But times were tough. Every day she’d come into work wearing her Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses and carrying her Louis Vuitton purse; normally she wouldn’t want to risk them being sullied or stolen, but she needed to remind her coworkers of their place. Every evening she’d scrub the ground beef and condiments from beneath her fingernails with contempt. She avoided her own gaze in the mirror; she never wanted to see herself looking so common. 

Just a little story today. Tonight I'm dressing up in my glam rock finest and heading to the Bowie Ball! If you're in Chicago, you should join me. Let's all put on our red shoes and dance the blues...
