From Your Weekly Circular, Meaning

Here’s a question: If you could, would you be a Sears catalogue model? You’re not at the height of your profession, other models look down on you and you may never star in or even appear on a reality TV show. But still, you’re better than average looking and you make a decent living.

Chances are, you’ve already answered that question with your own job. Even if Sears catalogue models dream of walking the runway in Paris and being a special guest judge on America’s Next Top Model, they’re still pursuing something. And nearly everyone I know is doing the same. For now, living the dream has us metaphorically posing in discount thermals instead of vomiting up champagne and caviar around the world. Sears catalogue models, I don’t judge you. I am you.
