So it is that, at 3pm on Friday afternoon, when she is usually guaranteed to be at home, when A. pops by with R. to tell her about the job offer, she is not at home.
A. leaves a note, but doesn’t mention the job. She wants to see the joyful reaction of her friend face to face. So it will be Monday or Tuesday before she finds out about the positive turn of events.
She will, however, walk by the Bay and see the ad — Confidence Day — it’s for a slogan contest, that starts tomorrow at 9am. $100 in Cash prizes. 26 prizes to be won! She will be there with bells on.
