Grace Kelly of Manitowoc
She's too cool for [high] school, this Grace. Opting instead to hold court at a four-top where she spoons steel cut oatmeal into her perfectly made up mouth. She's all leggings and dewy cheeks. When she closes her paperback (she must be reading about the origins of her oats), everyone/thing will inhale while she bats her leg-length lashes. You've never seen her make contact with a vehicle, but she'll flit across the county and beyond, making a series of Spirograph stars with her travels from point A to point B to see-my-snakeskin-skinny-jeans. Somewhere between here and Hilbert--voila!--she appears with empty Kombucha jar.
