“Oh hi Steve how can I help you today?”
“Just need to check stock, Kathy; have you got a case of teal cub bags?”
“Can I please put you on hold for just a moment, Steve?”
“Good morning, Mary Jo how are you?”
“I’m fine thanks. Kathy, I need to check on some backorders.”
“I can do that for you, but I have another call on hold and I’m here all by myself. Would it be okay if I call you back?”
“Steve, thanks for holding – yes we have a case of cubs in teal.”
“Thanks, Kathy; I’ll email the order.”
“Ok, I’ll keep my eye out for it.”
“Jack, XYZ Company called about their backorders; I don’t want to call Mary Jo back without turnaround information. When are we going to place the next order?”
“Kathy, when is the next payment due for XYZ? Can we place another order without making a payment?” Jack retorted totally ignoring my question. “We gotta take a look at what else we owe sometime today,” he continued.
“Ok, do you want me to print an A/P Aging Report?” I offered.
“Yeh, guess that’s a good idea; I’ll take a quick look at it while you’re at lunch.”
“See you in a while,” I replied.
Closing the office door behind me I held my face up to the bright sunshine and breathed in the crisp air. Grateful for this time to myself, I walked - quickening my pace with each step almost as if I were running away, and my thoughts returned to The Writer’s Life.
You know you want to write, I reflected. Yes I do - with all my heart and soul. So what are you going to do about it? “I’m going to write – no matter what!” I heard myself exclaim aloud.
