then you wrote a killer article

about their secret romance,

and it ran in

a major New York newspaper.

Think about it.

The editor of the school paper

is upstaged by

a member of his own staff.

- He's dying over this.

- You're so right, Jen. Thanks.

- What are friends for?

- So true.

Do you think Miss Dawson

saw the picture?

I don't know.

It's hard to tell.

May I have your attention, please?


As you know, it's Career Week,

and we're very honored

to have the participation

of so many talented parents.

I want your complete

attention when they present.

Now, our first speaker

is a 12-year veteran of the CIA,

with 10 years as

a covert operations officer.

Everyone, let's give

a big round of applause for

Mrs. Sommerville.

Thank you, Miss Dawson.

The life of a CIA operations officer

can be a very exciting one.

You get to travel the world,

explore different cultures,

meet lots of interesting people.

But it's a lonely life,

filled with empty hotel rooms

and late-night meals

in two-bit diners.

You begin to miss your cat.

I could write one too.

Jack, could you

come look at these mock-ups?

Ugh, I think my brain is in

meltdown. Can we go home yet?

What will people in this school

do without me? Listen to this.

"Dear Lexy, my friend

and I had a fight.

We made up, but the mean

things she said still hurt.

What should I do?

Signed, Bummed Out. "

This is a bummer. What will

you prescribe, Dr. Gold?

Well, she has to be honest

and tell her how she feels.

- That's what I'd do with you.

- And I with you.

Then, she should reward

herself for speaking out

by picking up a cute

jelly roll handbag.

Excellent advice.

She'll feel better in no time.


Okay, everyone,

time for our weekly meeting.
