A Guy Called Bloke tagged me to write about this charming picture.
After filling out her fifth application of the day, Nora looked up to see a familiar face. “Hey, Ben. I thought you were at Zinco.”
Ben shook his head. “Nope. We all got laid off last week. They eliminated our unit and now the Ones do the purchasing as well as customer support.”
“That’s all I hear,” Nora said. “Companies only want Ones because they can focus on the screen exclusively.”
“Plus they no longer have a sense of smell to distract them either. They subsist on protein shakes.” Ben shook his head. “I was considering a retrofit, but I really like to eat, especially pizza.”
Nora gasped. “I wouldn’t consider it! That’s disgusting. Changing yourself like that. You wouldn’t be you.”
“Yeah. But I’m worried about money. At least you have a husband.”
Nora went home that night, feeling sad for her old friend. But Ben was right: she had a husband and so wasn’t nearly as desperate to find a job.
“Hi honey,” she called out. “Why are all the lights off?”
“I have a surprise for you, Nora,” her husband said. “I’m going to be able to get that promotion now.”
Okay, now it’s my turn to tag peeps to write about a picture. I tag:
Here is your picture. Happy writing!
