Sometimes She Dreams of Spain

Part 3 of 6 by Nathan Tyree

Her mornings came around 1pm. She would roll from her bed without the assistance of an alarm and make oatmeal and dry toast, which were the only dishes she could manage without burning the building down. Suze would flip through the morning paper, giving the stories a glance then reach for the classified ads, which were her destination all along. There she would search for listings that seemed promising. Once in a while she would locate one: Office Assistant Needed, must have people skills, filing, typing, and light book keeping, salary negotiable. She would circle this, then insist to herself that she would type up a resume and send it in.
