A satirical look at life through the eyes of one of those young people who might be riding the bus next to you, chewing--seemingly innocently--on a rice cake. This particular young gal, on her way to work, considers her life in contrast to the ease of those around her, and makes a plan. This short story was first published in Seattle's Point No Point magazine.
