I was up and ready for the day by 4:00 am. I wanted toast for breakfast. There were 7 slices of my “Dirty White” left; so I decided to make a savory bread pudding for dinner. I looked in the refrigerator and saw that little bottle of Prosecco and a few eggs. I hadn’t been shopping in a while, and wondered if any store other than 7-11 was open? Then I remembered that Co-op place. I had enough time to shop, and get to work by 5:15 am. My boss comes in late on Thursdays because she lectures at the Business School downtown.
I was on the other side of my front door when I received a text from my boss. It read: “I was in a rush this morning and forgot to feed Ancel and Axel… Be a dear and take care of them for me. The food is in the giant walk-in freezer, in the basement. You should remember the security code.” I responded that I remembered the code and I’d be there soon.
