I’m tiny, so I would make the perfect jockey!
Dear Wild Wild Grassers,
I love cowboy movies. I watched them a lot with my grandpa. He loved John Wayne, so when I saw that you needed someone with True Grit, I was like—me, me, me! No one can rock assless chaps like me, and no one can ride a horse like me. I can ride anything. But, honestly, I’ve never ridden a lawn before. I mean, where do you put the saddle? Or do I kinda spread-eagle it? Whatever. I’m flexible. Like, literally, flexible.
Plus, I like being outside. And grass is nice and pretty and stuff. I just feel weird about riding on it, but I get it.

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.
