My Lyft driver is conventionally gorgeous. Tawny, toned, utterly fatless. Perfect pearly teeth. In wayshort shorts with her perfect toned tawny legs on display. Driving a shiny new black Mercedes minivan, she's like a real housewife of Beverly Hills, exiled to Tampa.
Only she's from San Diego. We chat about high schools and neighborhoods, graduation dates, and how distance made her ex a more attractive father to her kids.
As she drops me she hands me her card: Selena Jobseeker. She's looking for work in real estate. Using her Lyft gig as a lever for making contacts throughout the region. Give a ride, give her card. All kinds of clever if you ask me.
