Get Up, Get Out

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Frank

Subject: Leave the Apartment!

Sara is sitting on the couch, in her pajamas, with a big mug of coffee watching tv when Ann gets home. Frank is in the kitchen warming up leftover quesadillas from dinner last night.

Sara..still in pjs? Have you left the apartment at all this week?” Ann asks.

Umm..” Sara thinks. “I think I took out the garbage on Tuesday.”

So out of the apartment for two minutes, but haven’t seen the light of day?” Ann comments.

Outside!” Frank scoffs, “Who needs it.”

I guess no interviews this week?” Ann asks.

Actually, I talked to a recruiter yesterday. I may have one early next week.” Sara responds.

So you might actually get out into the world next week.” Ann says.

Since we’re going to go see Zombieland tomorrow night, I assume she’d make it outside this weekend.” Frank comments.

If she still remembers how to get dressed anyway.” Ann says.

Sara sticks out her tongue at Ann.

I don’t think they have a dress code at the theater. They’d probably let her in like that.” Frank says.

I hope she’s showered at least. Otherwise you’re sitting next to her.” Ann says.

I showered!” Sara says.

It’s alright.” Frank says, ignore Sara. “We’ll put her next to Billy. He won’t smell her over the popcorn that he seems to get at every movie.”

I don’t smell!” Sara says.

Good idea. Unless we put Sara in the middle and have her hold the popcorn. Mask her odor.” Ann theorizes, ignoring Sara.

Oh fine, I’ll shower.” Sara concedes, handing her coffee mug to Ann and heading to the shower.

Well, that was pretty easy.” Ann says, dumping the coffee down the drain.

Frank gasps. “You dumped her coffee? She’ll kill you!”

Eh. She drinks too much coffee anyway. It’s good for her to cut back.” Ann says.

Frank chuckles, “It’s your life.”

Sara Joins the Club

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, and Billy.

Subject: Another One Bites the Dust

Well, fuck.” Sara says, returning home to a busy apartment of Ann cooking, Frank and Billy playing chess, and Tabitha reading a book at the table. “I’ve joined the club.”

From Pictures

Club?” Tabitha asks, looking up from her book.

You know, those people they keep talking about. The rising unemployment rate.” Sara says.

Lost your job? What happened?” Ann asks.

Economy. They fired like eight people.” Sara explains.

That sucks Sara. Sorry.” Billy says.

Maybe I should take it as a slap in the face to change careers, or at least find a job I actually like. This support stuff is tough.”

Not sure this is the economy to be switching careers in. Unless you’re talking more school.”

Or playing poker. You could be my apprentice.” Frank chimes in.

Not sure I have the stomach for poker. All that money on the line. Too nerve-wracking.”

You’ll get unemployment at least.”

Sure. It’s not what I was making, but should keep me afloat.”

You get along with the people at work right? At least you’ll get a good reference from them.”

True. I’ll have to see what’s out there. Maybe another job is right around the corner.”

On the plus side, you no longer have to commute to Jersey every day!” Frank says. “Oh, and checkmate Billy.”

Doh!”

That’s an excellent observation. If I never see that part of Jersey City again, I certainly won’t miss it.”
