Nobody likes to be rejected, but rejection on some level, can be validating. I am not advocating a loser’s mentality here, whatever that is, but in some sense, I did my homework.
A short distance from Unalco’s world headquarters, six burgers sizzled on the grill at Burger Empire. The cook, 21-year-old Caroline Friday, could care less if they sizzled away to complete brown and black grease. It would not bother her if her life did the same too. Of course she realized that today she was in a rather despondent mood. 1989 had not turned out the way she wanted and next year--and maybe the entire new decade--promised more of the same disappointment.
