You probably think that life is hard for most people but that it’s not that hard for 15-year-old girls who want to dress up like Tinkerbell and go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Well let me tell you, life IS hard for most people, but it’s ESPECIALLY hard for 15-year-old girls who want to dress up like Tinkerbell and go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. April Spielman spent two hours putting on her makeup and another hour putting on her makeup, which really seems like a bit too much time to dedicate to this thing even if you DIDN’T get stopped at the gates and forced to change clothes, but also she is a 15-year-old girl so what else was she going to do? Go to school? Work? Please. So you can only imagine how heartbreaking it was to be told she had to change out of her costume. So heartbreaking. Life is tough. Eventually you learn that it’s just one painful loss after another. First they make you change clothes at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the next thing you know your mortgage is underwater and you need your elderly father to be the guarantor on your studio apartment at the age of 39, and the next thing you know you’ve been out of work for 23 months and you’ve stopped even trying to find work, and the next thing you know your only child disappears on what should have been a routine trip to Fort Lauderdale for spring break, and the next thing you know you’re lying in a hospice bed staring up at the ceiling tiles and trying to remember your mother’s name. But it starts with the Tinkerbell costume. Always.
