[ You did apply for a job, the way I know you applied for a job is the way I have your resume on my ipad. And the way I know you killed puppies to get this job, is the way that you stop breathing when I said the name Olivia Pope, which is a tale, your tale, which you should look at, because I’m gonna offer you a crap salary and you’re gonna have to take it because you never really learned how to stop breathing in and out without stopping. But don't feel bad, cause we all get paid crap salaries because we’re the good guys, I’m a good guy, which means I generally don't lie which I just did to you. This is not a job interview. Olivia already told me to hire you, the job is yours if you want it, best job you’ll ever have. You’ll change lives, slay dragons, love a lot more than you have ever dream. Because Olivia Pope is as amazing as they say. ]
