Sorry, Karen

It's not your fault.

Fortune Magazine. Doodling by Stephanie Downard

Doodling because I don't know what to write.

I guess this magazine will do.

Sorry, Karen from CVS Health.

Thought you might look good with tattoos.

Rest assured you're still a lovely lady,

Adding a little pizazz never hurt.

CEO turned to boss bitch.

Too bad you fell victim to my bad art.

I could have written something wonderful.

Only now, I'm stuck with this.

Needless to say, my time management sucks.

    😆 I love this! I think she should consider some body art. Maybe done by a tattoo artist, but still, stylish!
