Career Shift

“How was your day?”

“Fine. I guess.” I took a deep breath. “I quit my job.”

“What?! Why?”

“I don’t know.” I really didn’t. “It was just…boring?” I plopped into the Lazy-boy and started pulling papers out of the trash can. Ads. Cable TV. Cash for gold. Artificial grass.

“Really?” Scoffing. “An ambulance isn’t exciting enough?”

I pulled out a yogurt cup. Raspberry.

“I don’t know….” Sigh.

Used Q-tips.

“So what are you gonna do now?”

Pepsi bottle.

“Start a life of crime?”

A utility bill. Ah. Name and account number.

Sheesh, this ’Linda Sturgis’ is boring as sin.
