Showing Up on the First Day in Two Different Shoes


The automatic coffee maker does its job
that morning. The alarm clock, notsomuch.

Now in a rush, I carefully choose clothes
that say I am a responsible adult, a dependable,
reliable soul who will certainly be a major
asset to this here establishment, yessirree.

Make it through the first 3 meetings with a
smile, in style.Whew. Order lunch. Look down.

One black.
One blue.
