"I have some bad news," I said.

My son looked at me with concern. "Let me sit down," he said.

He sat down, and I sat down across from him. "Tell me," he said.

I sighed. "I got fired from my job."

"WHAT?" he exclaimed.


"Yeah. My boss got fed up with me."

He stared at me. "Mom, you're self employed."

I nodded. "Yep. But I've had it. No more. Anyway, I'm pretty happy about the whole thing. I was a lousy employee, and I'm glad to get rid of myself. So, to celebrate, I'm going on a cruise in the Mediterranean."

He was still staring at me. "What about me?" he said.


I handed him a stack of papers.

"What's this?"

I smiled. "Job applications. Someone has to support this family."

I headed upstairs to pack my bags.
