“What is the most romantic gesture you can think of?”
Sitting behind the desk in her best business suit, legs crossed, she tapped the pen on the bridge of her nose and stared at the question.
All she could think was, What kind of secretarial job am I applying for?

Okay, the only reason why I don’t do word count stories is because my editor lies to me about word count. How do you manage to get it at 50 words? Please tell me it doesn’t involve manually counting.
I have to know.
Um… I assume the word counter in my editor is correct. I know it lies at first, but it catches up after a few edits… I think. Should I be going back to count? Or maybe I should type it in a Word document and copy and paste it here…? I have actually counted a couple of times. But then 50 isn’t that difficult. If it was more than a hundred I’d definitely type it in a doc and transfer.
You’re at 50 every time. Which is an awesome thing in and of itself. It shows why there can be only one Linda G. Hill.
Probably a good thing. 😉
Ha HA! Sounds a bit dodgy that job! 🙂
A bit, eh? 😉
Can’t say I ever got asked that question when applying for a secretarial job. My question always was, “Do I have to wear pantyhose?”
Ha! I always did but I hated them. Especially in the summer.
I was so happy when I changed careers, and swore I’d never wear them again. And, I haven’t –some times tights, but not panty hose (except the occasional Halloween).
Yep, me too. 🙂
