When I was between jobs I wasted no time job hunting. Running true to form, I landed a new job after two weeks.
"It looks like you won't be sharing the food bowl with Maloos after all," texted Fred. I laughed. I had survived by freeganing and living off my credit card.
A few weeks after I started my ex-supervisor was made redundant. I also happened to know someone who was looking for someone with his skills to fill the position. An introduction was made, he aced the interview and got the job. He thanked me.
"Butterscotch wants a hundred mice," I said.
"One hundred mice coming up," he replied.
"They must be fresh, big, unsalted, furry and raw."
"I think the pet shop will look at me funny."
