It’s not easy being me. My friends all get to stay in a job which never pushes their borders or limits. They never have to grow, stretch or make an effort to support more than they bargained for. My friend albRIGHT, for example, is fine. Sometimes he has to get used to a new member, but he doesn’t experience the pain of growing. He doesn’t eve have to be all things at once. I never know if I’ll be filling my original role, or one much larger. Some mornings, I get a member to support that’s nice and small, then, the next morning, my member is huge, with lots of specific needs. I stretch my budget here, crimp there and no matter what, I come out with too few materials. I feel like the non-profit of the shoe world, being Nickie’s left shoe.
