Being Jane

May 18 · 1 min read

At a club I met an entertainer named Jane.

Since she’s Polish, it was quite natural for Jane to become a Pole dancer. Outwardly friendly, she has a bad reputation as a backstabber. Why? Because Jane has been known to stab people in the front, too. Despite her negative qualities, she also has some good points. For example, Jane signs her name neatly in the signature box on a credit card terminal.

Yes, as part of her job, Jane does wear clothes, but she likes to appear as if she is falling out of them. She makes good money at the club, but it’s hard work. At the end of each night she soaks her feet in a casserole pan she keeps in her dressing room. Afterwards, she uses it to prepare a thin broth of French bunion soup.

Jane tends to save up her money for large purchases. She thought it would be great to travel in style, so she bought an airplane. It was nothing fancy nor luxurious, so Jane named it Vanilla. She said, “I may be a plain Jane, but my plane Vanilla gets me where I need to go.”
