All Evan wanted to do with his life was play the instrument. He practiced day in and day out in the family garage. Jessie joined, and they became a duo playing at neighborhood BBQs, then Alice joined, and they started getting gigs at friend’s parties. Eventually they won the local competition and Evan was sure his career was going to finally take off on the national scene.
“I’m sure of it, Mom,” he said as he packed up his car and moved to Location to pursue his dream.
Once there, his world came crashing as reality of adulthood hit him. He had to earn money while working nights on his musical career. First, he was a occupation, then a occupation, then finally an adult video store clerk. Still, it paid the bills and he was adjective.
After a few months, Jessie and Alice joined him and they got the group back together. Reality TV Show came to town and the friends entered.

Eventually, he started composing for adult plural noun, found work as a drag show director, and found a full-time career in music. It was a great life.
