The Figure Figures
Sally Adams, a bookkeeper, lives in lil’ Ole New Orleans. When we asked her why a girl would choose bookkeeping as a career, she replied "A girl has to work." Work she may have to, but why such a dry subject. She admits that bookkeeping is boring and that is why she does modelling part time.
Bending over a set of books all day is not recommended by us. We think that it might make one round-shouldered. It doesn’t seem to have harmed Sally though. Sally has a set of numbers that we find more appealing than any that you might find in a book. They read twenty-three years old, five feet seven inches tall, and here is the clincher, 36-26-36. Add those figures to her black hair and blue eyes and the sum total is beauty.
Sally likes the night life and during her vacations she really fires it up. She goes from one night spot to another until the break of dawn. During the year she only has the weekends to have fun. Dancing the mambo and cha cha cha is Sally’s hobby and just recently she was voted queen of the twist.
Sally won’t give up her job as a bookkeeper until she gets married. That is if she ever gets married. She has lots of boyfriends and likes all of them, but she just can’t make up her mind. It just proves what all men have always known. Even if she is a bookkeeper, a woman just doesn’t add up.
