Me: You could deliver newspapers.
Gal Smiley: Hm, I’m not sure I want to do that.
Captain Jelly Belly: Me neither. You can’t even ride by on your bike and throw them, you have to walk them up to the door!
Gal Smiley: REALLY?
Captain Jelly Belly: It’s true! The movies lied to us.

My kids are both paperboys and, no, you cannot ride your bike and throw papers. And, yes, the pay is a pittance. But – oh – the character being built …
Apparently the bike riding paper throwing thing is THE SHIZZLE. Without that – there’s just no glory :).
We live in the wrong climate for that (most of the time …) 😦
