It seems like being a gossip columnist might be a fun thing to be
you're one of those people who always has a guilty conscious
feels bad about talking crap about people when they leave the room.
I bet somewhere there is a highly successful gossip columnist who got there by accident.
They didn't mean for anyone to read that essay they wrote that trashed that one person,
but for some reason it fell into the hands of someone who read it and turned it into a money maker,
so they wrote another essay
thought well I can't quit now...on my 5th essay.
So they stuck with it, just because.
It would probably be cooler to be the person who discovers the gossip columnist.
What would that job title be?
