I loved the pice that Scalse wrote about her experience as a hostess at a swanky nightclub. I found myself laughing out loud. This is one of the pieces that I would have been okay reading an extra 20 pages. I've noticed a lot of people are making the argument (or just a statement) about the story not having much purpose. If we've learned something this semester, and we've learned much more than just one thing, it's that it's okay for a story not to have bigger meaning. I'm taking this story, just as a did with Orlean's, at face value. It's funny and it's entertaining. I finished reading it because I wanted to.
I'll never be a host at a night club like this. I'll never have to entertain celebrities. I'll never know what that's like. I'm happy that Scales gave me a glimpse of it.
I'm a little shocked about how bluntly she described the celebrities that she hosted. She is by no means sensitive when she described their etiquette. I loved how real her descriptions were. Her bluntness definitely came off as bitchiness which only added to the entertainment.
Loved it. It was short. (Just kidding)
