Mary's misanthropic mother wanted to make her major in marketing. “You will make more money managing men in marketing maneuvers than making music on your mahogany mandolin.”
Mary mourned. “But making music makes me merry.”
“Money can modify most anything. Make your money marketing merchandise.”
Mary was mad. Marketing merged monkey moves with manipulation and managing minions.
But then Mary met Mike. Mike was a magician, a man who made money mesmerizing the masses. Mike managed to make Mary's mother understand. Mary missed music.
Mary majored in music and married Mike and now makes music for millions.
