A short story …

for Friday Fictioneers

I’d prepared an answer for every question I was likely to be asked. I was about to be interviewed for a fantastic new job!

A glamorous secretary approached me. ‘Walk this way’ she said, sashaying across the waiting room. I obediently swayed my hips as I followed her! She’ll be fun at the office party I thought.

‘Good morning, Mr Plain’  said the bespectacled lady.

‘Hello, Miss Take’ I said,  ‘but actually, I’m Mr Smart!’

‘And I’m Miss Right’ she said, ‘Miss Take runs the company on the next floor’.

I made a hasty exit passing a nervous-looking Mr Plain in the reception area.

    Dear Keith,

    Sounds like a typical case of Miss Take en idnetity. 😉 You made me laugh with swaying hips. Old gag…but still funny.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    He’ll have to be careful upstairs in case he runs afoul of Miss Demeanour while looking for Miss Take…

    Great escape. Who wants to work for people that can’t even get names right. I hope Mr Smart swayed his hips as he left.

    He sounded very confident when he reflected on the forthcoming office party.

    If Mr. Plain’s first name is Xavier, maybe that could X Plain everything? Too funny! Made me grin.

    I hope Mr. Smart marries a Ms. Ass, and she hyphenates. He’d be a much better match for her than Mr. Dumb.

    Glad she had a sense of humor and wasn’t Displeased, as it bodes well for Mr. Plain. Now hurry and get to the next floor!
