Suzi's Cover Letter:
Dear Wild Ones:
Welcome to the jungle! I didn’tknow we had safaris here! I love adventure and I love giraffes! Can I pet one?
I saw the thingie about your dress code. Is it okay to wear khaki and one of those safari hats? I feel khaki complements my skin tone. I could wear a khaki one-piece swimsuit and the hat!!!
When it comes to crafts, I’m really good at making pot holders and angels. I have the kit! And when it comes to being green, I will gladly poop in the woods to save water. Nature to nature!
With the whole snore thing, I’m an expert. My pops has CPAP. But when it comes to walking backwards, I’m a little klutzy. But I will practice!
I’m really good at planning grown up sleepovers. My best was the Disney Princess theme. We all looked glittery, and I made adult drinks like: Snow White Russians & Lion King Dons.
And let me tell you about my mic skills! I could totally work your hawk box:
My name is Suzi
And we’re talkin’ ‘bout snoozies
This ain’t a bore
Lemme here ya roar!
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.
