I hate tests. It's a really lousy way to judge a person's ability (Bill Paxton)
I put a flower in my hair, took my cupcakes and Big Yellow Shoes and made my mark. It may not have been the mark they are looking for, but my presence was left after my interview.
I failed the maths test though – I had no idea how to work out the Vat on net amounts and gross amounts. I have heard these words but do not know what they are. So I had to leave blank spaces on my page! If I had had more time, I could have drawn them something interesting…
I enjoyed my interview with my little captive audience. I felt like a magician when I took the Yellow Shoes out of the box at the end of the interview.
Having said that, I do not think I am what they are looking for. Pity, I could have been a good ‘mum’ to have around, to look after them.
