Sample Text From The Job Hunt

It was morning. Kurt Gunter was in the kitchen with his big sister, Kim. Kurt placed some butter on his toast. Kim glanced at the paper and ate some toast.
Kurt was seven. His sister Kim was nineteen. She was home from college for the summer.

“What are you doing?” Kurt asked.
“I’m looking in today’s paper at the Job Opening ads,” Kim said.
“I need a summer job,” Kim explained. “Why do you need a job?”
“So I can make some cash.”
“What will you do with your cash?” asked Kurt.
“I’ll save most of it,” said Kim. “But I’ll spend some on things I need, like clothing. And I would like to get a bike.”
“You can get a bike if you get a job?”

Kurt sat thinking of how much fun it would be to ride bikes with Kim.
“Cool! So, what sort of job will you get?” Kurt asked.
“I can’t tell. That’s why I’m looking at the paper.”
Kurt ate some toast. Then he asked, “Should I get a job, too?”
Kim smiled. “You are just seven,” she said. “You don’t need to get a job yet. You should be having fun.”
“But I would like one!” Kurt wailed.
“I’ll tell you what,” Kim said. “You can help me look for a job. If you see a job you like, then you can get that job when you are my age.”
