Step out and wave at the peasants below

Handwritten page of a diary dated March 1, 1999

because I just applied for a job with the FBI. Not an exciting job — BUT I could be sitting behind a desk some day and they could be looking for someone with an unassuming look and pluck me out and send me out in the FIELD. They should. People trust me and tell me things all the time. Sometimes I think, hey you barely even know me — why are you telling me THAT? I know I could find out secrets from an enemy regime. I could bring it DOWN.

Then the peasants will be dancing in the streets and holding my picture. They’ll swarm over the lawn of the palace and refuse to leave until they see me. I’ll be convinced to step out on the balcony of the royal palace and they’ll throw flowers up to me

    A group of us has this friend, Cheri, who moved far away. When we go see her, I can just imagine swarming over the lawn of her palace and refusing to leave until we see her. ;-)
