Today At Work

She walked into the shop around mid-afternoon. She was smartly dressed with close cropped silvery hair. Both she and the husband following behind were in their early sixties. She gushed over the clothes. She loved the designers sense of the basics. And then her cell phone rang.
–You’re serious? That’s awful! I’m so distraught. What am I going to do now with fall coming?
–How’s (name withheld) taking this? She loved them too!
–Oh, I know. This is terrible news. This is terrible.
She hung up the phone and turned to her husband. “The worst thing has just happened,” she said choking back a cry. “My favorite upholsterers have just gone out of business.”
