It's a good thing I came back in for the pix. My uncle looked at me and asked if I was okay. "Oh yeah, I'm fine" I said. "Your mother told me you've been struggling to find the right career." Wow my mom was actually nice enough not to say I was fired. "yeah, I really want to get into fashion designing, but I have no idea where to start" I said. Uncle Mike said "well, I'm sure you will figure it out soon enough. I need to get my things put away and ready for dinner. Do you know when your mother will be home?"

"Hello, who's home?" yelled a booming male voice I didn't recognize at all. "Uh, it's Claire, Sidney's daughter," I stammered back. "Who are you?" I asked, as I turned around to walk downstairs to confront the unexpected visitor. As I rounded the turn I saw my favorite uncle standing there with two suitcases, arms open. "I know who you are," my uncle laughed, and enveloped me in his big bear hug." I squealed, "Uncle Mike! What are you doing here??" "Didn't your mom tell you? I'm in town for a couple weeks, and I planned a nice celebratory dinner tonight. I can't tell you what we're celebrating until tonight though!" I thought to myself, "So that's what Jake was trying to tell me outside the fabric store." How was I going to get out of this now? I couldn't exactly go to dinner tonight after outing my Mom's boyfriend.

I started to feel really guilty. I mean I despise Jake but I love my mother. How is making her miserable going to make Jake miserable. Maybe if we go for a nice mother/daughter dinner I can convince to help me with my aspirations in fashion. I ran upstairs to remove the photo from her pillow when I heard the front door open. I

i grabbed my cell phone and called my cousin denna. she owed me a favor and was up on everything through last night. as i drove a explained to her what i needed. she would get my mom out of the house and i would leave the pix of jake and alan in bed together on her pillow; a sort of good night kiss for my own mommy dearest. i pulled up next to the bushes across the street from their house. the shadow hid me, and as i saw my mother leave i made my way across the street and went in through the kitchen door which was never locked. then i placed the pix on her pillow and went back to me car to wait. for some reason i couldn't leave until she came back, until i knew it was over. about an hour and a half later...

Jake, my good-for-nothing boss. "Claire," he said with a confused look on his face. "Jake," I said surprisingly loud. Jake and I gave each other an weird look, almost like we were shocked to have seen each other in the same place. "Your mother wants to know..." "I have to get going Jake," I interrupted him. I was not in the mood to be lectured at. As I got inside my red Volvo, I looked at rearview mirror and saw Jake starring back at me. I quickly turned my eyes away, thinking....

from Canada? Because I just moved here about three days ago..." hmmm odd, I thought to myself, this guy looked way too familiar. "Oh really! So how do you like it here so far?" I asked shyly and curiously. "Oh you know, its alright if your into the whole "Hollywood scene," my buddies took me out to some clubs last was the first real night I actually did something here. I think it was called Hyde? I guess its some celeb hot spot...I don’t know." In my mind, my jaw dropped, my eyes fell to the floor, and I melted to the ground as I realized I was at Hyde last night and it was definately the one night stand/leave in the morning without a goodbye guy. Completely embarrassed I shriveled up and began backing away like a dog with a tail between its legs. "ohh Hyde really?" I quickly said as I picked up the machine and began grabbing my money as fast as I could

"I'm...looking...for...ah...sewing...machine," I said, looking at the associate in the eyes. "Sure," he responded with a smile and lead me to the aisle. The whole time I was walking behind him I couldn't help but think how familiar he looked with his brown curly hair. He looked almost like the guy from last night, who happens to walk out on me this morning. "Was I that bad?" I thought to myself. "Here they are ma'am," he said, pointing at the shelves filed with an array selection of sewing machines from $25.00 to $150.00. He started to walked away, when I stopped him and asked....

JoAnne Crafts. I'd heard somewhere that they sold sewing materials there. What I need more than anything else though was a sowing machine. I didn't even know how to use one, but I knew if I hadn't one, I would never get anything done. The store was huge and I felt overwhelmed. I decided to ask an associate for assistance and I felt nervous for the first time in a long while. I stuttered..

She smiled at me and said "well think about it honey but I have an appointment with the cookey landlord, apparently she thinks spirits are following her...ugh." We mutually hugged and I headed out. As I walked downstairs and out the building I took a second to look at my surroundings. My cute little convertible parked in front of me, the trees blowing in the summer breeze, I looked down at my feet to be reminded that I did have great taste in my jimmy choos. What was I thinking? I havent got it that bad! That job wasnt me in any way! With a new outlook on life, I hopped in my car, top down, music blaring and headed to

fashion designer? That's not exactly an easy career to get into. Plus, it's not like I know anyone who can help me out, and that's basically the only way I can get a job with a resume like mine." I was exasperated. This day felt like it was spiraling out of control, and the incense was giving me a migraine.

I sat there staring at the opposite wall. It had escaped my mind. The first thought that hit me was that I'll just end up running to my mother to get me a new job. Rita had her arms crossed and looked down on me with a disapproving face. She shook her head.

"I think it's time you started to think about your priorities dear friend," Rita said, "what are you going to do now that you've lost your job?"

Flashes: a curly haired stranger, being led into a red convertible, coffee, sex. Yes, I indeed did get laid last night, and apparently the guy ran out on me in the morning. I wasn't sure whether I should be glad I broke my dry spell, or whether I should feel guilty, or whether I should be mad some guy dashed on me before I woke up. Rita walked into the room with my coffee and looked down at me serenely. "You shouldn't be mad he dashed, Amanda. You woke up at 11 AM. He had to leave for work at 9." Rita had read my mind.

...wearing a flowing purple paisely dress that billowed around her in the breeze. "Oh, you poor thing!" she said, enveloping me in a warm, earth-mother hug and the smell of patchouli. "Just come in and relax, and tell me all about it." I followed her into the living room, and as she went into the kitchen to get me a cup of coffee, I sank wearily down onto her sofa. Suddenly, as I settled in among the pile of hand-crocheted cushions on the sofa, an image popped into my head from the previous night...

"Did I hook up with someone?" Suddenly I was lost. I had just "accidently" hung up on my mother and lost a job. Did I just have a one-night stand last night that I could remember? I was lost in thought and suddenly I slammed my brakes before I hit the car in front of me. I made it safe to Rita's house however. I knocked on Rita's screendoor and she answered it in her usual Bohemian attire..

Rita, my best friend and self-professed mystic. "Hey Rita," I said, trying to keep the mental exhaustion out of my voice "Oh my Gawd! What's wrong I dreamt you were pregnant," Rita replies anxiously. I'm sure she hopes I am so her predictions can finally be validated. "I just got fired and I'm hungover," I whined. "Come over, have some coffee and food and I'll read your cards." "Coffee yes, food no, cards puh-lease," I said as I made my way to Rita's house....
