I heard an NPR story called Ghetto Life 101. They gave two teenage boys in Chicago a tape recorder and told them to record everything that happened in a day. One asks his mother, “Who is my father?”
“Your father is a felon named Toby Flipper. He saw you when you were about two and I ain’t seen him since.”
“What do you think happened to him?”
“He’s probably dead.”
LeAlan Jones and Lloyd Newman are great.
I thought, there’s a recorder on my phone, I should do that. I don’t live in the ghetto; but, I work in one of the world’s fanciest brothels, and people might be interested.
Here is a day in my life at work:
The audio isn’t perfect because the recorder on my phone seems to skip, especially the first few seconds of this, but you’ll get the gist.
This is what I look like when I wake up in the morning.
This is what I look like after I put on my makeup.
