Last week Sharon discovered Fred and Corrine were taking advantage of the company checkbook and she laid down the law about stealing company money. She had a feeling they would continue on a path and considered how she’d finally get rid of them.
She gathered her pups and drove to the nearby dog park where many pooches small and large ran free. Sharon had to laugh at a fierce Chihuahua barking at her large pets. The owner, a man dressed in a suit, joined her and said, “Come here often?”
“That’s a line from a bar, right?” “Yes it is and I used it a lot in the old days and it worked most of the time.” I never bar hopped because I married young and lost my husband a few months ago and how about you?” “I’m married to this pipsqueak pet of mine the past few years; her name is Janis Joplin, she can’t sing but man, can she bark in high C; I was divorced a couple of times and I just can’t seem to get it right.”
“Tommy, Gracie, “NO” Sharon’s dogs stopped harassing another canine; they have been in the backyard too long without my attention so I’ll have to bring them here more often.”
The tall stranger smiled and said,”I hope you do; what’s your name, if you don’t mind.”
“I’m Jack Torrance; I sing on Broadway right now in a revival of Chicago and now it’s your turn and remember, I’m just asking for your name.”
