TWO ESSAYS BETTER THAN ONE
My original title for this post was "How To Milk One Subject For All It's Worth and Get Paid Twice" but I didn't think it would fit in the header box.
Once I got the hang of how to sell essays by using a current topic/trend as a jumping off point, I kicked it up a notch (thanks to the advice of some more seasoned writers than I) and learned you can get two distinct essays from that said topic. I thought I'd pass on the learning.
I've done it this time using the break out hit "2 Broke Girls". In the past, I used the much promoted/talked about movie "Bridesmaids."

"But it's hard enough to write one essay," you may say. Give yourself some credit. If a topic can bring to mind one personal story, it can bring forth another. Perhaps not every time, but every once and a while, wouldn't it be nice to get a double pay check.

How strange you should bring up this subject on the very day that I wore my pjs (only the pj top over slacks) to the gourmet Market Basket here. Either I've declined and lost all sense of shame, or I've developed such a strong sense of self that nothing bothers me. I don't know which it is -- and I really don't care.
I still got waited on and nobody looked at me funny or said anything.
