    Hey there Mr. Publisher. During my formative years, I used to collect the remains of dead birds in my backpack, or lunch sack, I’ve got one hell of a story to tell.

    My parents met at Ted Bundy’s trial, and I was dead for four and a half minutes in 2010; those aren’t the highlights, just two random facts. Yes, I really am that awesome. Here, have a white mocha cupcake and call me.

    What I would say would be, ” Hi my name is Kentrel Plummer, whats yours… Nice to meet you…Oh I would diffenitly tell you who I am. I’m an athletic, artistic, and poet. I’m on my way to an enter view with some of NYC’s finest business men. They want to talk about my ideas and what I think of this job and how it would benefit me. I say, ” I think this job would help me start my career, and benefit me as I start working in a business world.” Alright you have a great day.
