Part Time Model

I love Flight of the Conchords, the funk-folk duo from HBO/New Zealand. And I especially love their song “The Most Beautiful Girl (in the room).” 

Every time I think about taking a part-time job (I have an interview for one today!) I think of that song. I think about the sad, sad compliments levied at this woman:

You’re so beautiful, you could be a waitress
You’re so beautiful, you could be an air hostess in the 60s
You’re so beautiful, you could be a part-time model

You’re a part time model, but you’d probably still have to keep your normal job
(Part time model)
I could see you at an auto show, dancing on a car

(Part time model)
You’d spend part of your time modeling, and part of your time next to me

I feel like a part time job for me is like the back handed compliment of this song, adorable, but totally NOT what I need. I’m going to go any way, and see what happens. Maybe it will be growing to full time in the coming 6-12 months. I could get down with that.
