I have to say Jenners really made me think about this one. I had to sit down and contemplate...what exactly the key moments of my life have been.
We've all heard those scary stories about the people who missed the plane and then it crashed, or were stuck in traffic and late for work on 9/11. But that really wasn't a conscious decision.
When I was 18 I moved out of my house. After all, I had everything figured out and didn't need to go to college or learn anything else. I was working at Burger King and partying with friends every weekend. I moved in with one of those friends into an apartment that made my mother cry every time she came to visit.
Shortly after that, I was fired. It's a long story meant for another post, but for this game let's pretend that never happened. Let's pretend that I didn't get fired from Burger King, that I stayed there, worked there, and became the manager.
Me and the King
When he came to me and asked me what I thought of his proposition I sort of chuckled. After all he wasn't really my type. Of course, I never really thought that I would be over 35 and still not married.
There was that one boy, who worked here many moons ago, but alas he went off to college and never returned. I thought I would end up with him, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.
I've worked at BK for more than half my life. I've seen many changes. I've gone from working the cash register, to making the sandwiches, to handling the fries and onion rings, to now being in charge of the safe.
Should I take it one step further? Should I accept the King's marriage proposal?
I think it is meant to be.
Just imagine how cute our kids will be!
