Fans of MBLJoE
The Infirm Intern's latest status update on Facebook is, well, typical:|
knee is still throbbing today, and is very frustrated with Sallie Mae!! They r like ruthless loan sharks trying to suck money out of me that I do not have and threatening me if I don't pay!! They don't care that I have been out of work for 6 months and am broker than broke!!!Whoa, hold on there: wasn't it just this March—four and a half months ago—that she began her lucrative multi-level marketing career? She ought to be financially independent by now, with a can't-miss opportunity like that.
Paradoxically, one can construe Alissa's relationship with the universe as a strong argument in favor of the existence of God. You've probably have known someone in a relationship in which Partner 1 is trying to break it off with Partner 2, but the more desperately Partner 1 tries to escape, the more tightly Partner 2 clings. Now put God and Alissa in the rôles of 1 and 2, respectively. Doesn't it seem like God is dropping a series of increasingly unsubtle hints that S/He'd rather not take credit for Alissa's pathological worldview? Alissa doesn't realize it, but her best course of action is to become an atheist. Then God would at least treat her with indifference.
As an aside, I wish I could always call 'em this accurately (from the same post in March):
My guesses: Amway distributor or Mary Kay Cosmetics rep (like Shelley Lynn!!). Prognosis: complete failure within one month.But then again, the universe is nowhere nearly as predictable as the Infirm Intern.
