I don’t know much, but I do know my alcohol.
Before the word “DRUNK!” runs into your head let me explain...
When I first came to NYC I realized that the best place to make a buck was a bar. Drunk people had to be better tippers than the sober coffee drinking teenagers at my last job. So though I had never actually been in a bar (details, details) and barely knew that vodka and gin were two different things (it all tastes the same, right?!) I somehow convinced a man named Tom that he just HAD to hire me.
I was SO convincing that I was not only hired but given the serious responsibility of...Keeper of the Coats!!
The only thing I could say was that I would be “the BEST coat check girl EVER.”
Yep, really living the NYC dream!
