After nine fabulous days in Miami I have returned to my life as a Hooters Girl. I've had five shifts since I returned late Monday night. Add my work schedule to a summer class and a new apartment that still needs organizing and the beaches of Miami seem much more than a week behind me. That seems like another life.
And really it is, I've been to the other side of Hooters and I want in. While I love my orange shorts - while hating the nylons - I enjoyed the business end of things as I experienced it in Miami. Obviously being in Miami didn't hurt, but it felt good to play such an integral role in pageant week. It's not that being a Hooters Girl isn't important, it's that spreading what a Hooters Girl is so widely feels really important. After all, exposing the true nature of Hooters Girls was the whole point of this blog in the first place; being at the pageant allowed me to do that on a much larger scale. And that I loved.
I love my job and I love sharing it on this blog. I'm glad that Hooters gave me the opportunity to share with an even larger audience. And maybe one day I can do that full-time. But for now I'll happily don my shorts and continue to share my experiences here.
Maybe one day you can all say, "I read her when..."
