Suzi’s Cover Letter:
I’m a very open girl and I’m open about seaman. I mean, it’s crucial to making life! I was a wiz in health class. I am a little confused with what seaman has to do with decks, unless it’s, like, a polisher or something.
My first encounter with seaman was in Bobby Johnson’s car. He asked if I could but all hands on deck, so I did, and then…
And… I can lift heavy men. There was this one dude in college that like being body slammed by girls. Weird. But kinda fun!
One time I dressed like a hot sailor for Halloween and won!
Let’s Shove Off Together,
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
