reminds us of days when decisions were made for us, not by us. A young girl dreads the reality of her life as she is unable to wake up when she wants, choose her friends, pick her clothes, or even chose what to read. On the contrary, while at Subway shes able to indulge in whatever fixings she chooses and assures us that one day she will have this power in her own life.
