*Lill calls Jill at work*
Jill: I’m about to FIRE my assistant – you have 45 seconds.
Lill: Yeesh, what’s with the Friday AM vitriol? Normally you’re not this pissy until at least 3 o’clock.
Jill: Did you know that I had tea-stains on my khaki skirt when I left the apartment this morning??!! How in the hell does tea STAIN khaki??!! They’re both BROWN!!
Lill: I didn’t notice – I wasn’t even aware that you owned anything khaki – it’s quite a departure from your usual lycra, spandex and fishnet.
Jill: *Grumble* I found it in the back of my closet.
Lill: Looking to reboot your late nineties wardrobe? The Gap marketing team will be delighted.
Jill: *Sigh* We had a visiting delegation from the Middle East.
Lill: …and you thought it would be best to look like sand?
Jill: *Sigh* I need to go.
Lill: …to fire your assitant?
Jill: ARGH!! She tried to get the tea-stain out and now I have a STAIN-remover-stain hovering three inches above my crotch – it’s blue.
Lill: Hmm…apparently wearing khaki is bad for business…
Jill: *Sigh* Thank you Lillian – I’ll be sure to capture this lesson when I pen my professional memoirs.
Lill: So I take it we’ll be drinking our dinner tonight then?
Lill: Clear fluids only?
Jill: *Sigh* Obviously.
