My Resume' -- BOTH Audio and Text

Listen to poem:
Now, who wouldn't hire this confident young entrepreneur? Sitting here this morning at my desk a bit concerned about a brand new job that I’m applying for today, I was so relieved to find the copy that I’d made of all my best accomplishments…to write my resumé. What a boon it’s going to be that I was “champion skater” the year they put the sidewalk in around the courthouse square. And I’ve become so great at shooting marbles that it’s scary…and have the biggest coffee can of cat’s-eyes anywhere. Everybody knows I have the very best collection. Boulders…peewees. Puries…steelies. Corkscrews…agates…swirls. I can play on grass, or dirt, or sand (if it’s real hard.). I’ve even whooped some older guys, and wiped out most the girls! And then, of course, we can’t forget the ribbon that I got when I was crowned the champion of our third grade spelling bee. I remember well, it was the word “Constantinople” that stumped the kid I had to beat, and won the prize for me. And I still hold the records down at Pussy Willow Pond for: thickest walleye…longest northern pike…and skipping rocks. And I’m the only one I know who’s never stayed home sick with illnesses like - whooping cough, the flu, or chicken pox. Factors such as these will make the applicant applying stand out from the others. These are big, important things! What employers look for in the person who applies is how much dedication and experience he brings. Naturally, these fields of expertise will come in handy. And as far as - “if I’m qualified,” why…there is just no doubt. This one’s in the bag, my friend…and soon my resumé will have a brand new entry when I add…this paper route!
