Envy is not favorite sin

May 23, 2008

For the past few months, I have worked on multiple projects for a single client through an agency. These projects involve the translation of copy for a catalog of <redacted>.

In the interest of preserving confidentiality, let’s say it is a shoe catalog. It is not, but let’s say it is. The particular “shoes” are far above my price range because I am a cheapskate when it comes to this.

Imagine translating copy for a catalog of Manolo Blahniks while wearing a pair of flip-flops from the dollar store.

It is not fun.
