washed the dishes and packed tomorrow's lunch, in the meantime my slacker son called, so suddenly one of the characters is now looking for work, repudiating her slacker ways! 

i kinda like this wish fulfillment aspect of the work.  in fact, i feel incredibly powerful....

But is she going to put her clothes on to look for this work?...Or does the type of work she's looking for not require clothing? :surprise:

ohh, good point!  wonder if she'll be propositioned in the interview?  oh, that would be awful... i just might do it!  except, she's more of a controller - men fall around her, they don't prey on her.  still...it's a thought.

how would it feel for the controller to be preyed upon??

well, that's gonna happen, but not in the job interview.  the job interview will only be an anecdote that she tells... no idea whether it's a good interview, a bad interview or a weird interview yet.  but, no, the come-uppance won't be in that scene.

good idea though.

HA! 

y'know, though, maybe if i convince my son he'd get propositioned in an interview, he'd actually apply for jobs!  it's a thought...thanks, coll!

Had any of you noticed how this thread went off road and drove into a ditch?

Ok, back on topic.  I waited 4 days to send my full and felt like I waited too long.  I'm into the quick turnaround.  Wish the agents were....
