Day in the Life Part 3: Robin Makes it to Work
Robin has reached Courtney's school, King Elementary. She is third in the drop off line.
Principal Reed is out greeting the parents.
"Bye, Mommy." (Miyo)
"Bye honey. I'll see you later." (Miya)
"Bye Mr. Reed." (Miya)
Next up is Danielle and Julian.
"Hello Mrs. Taylor and Julian." (Mr. Reed)
"Good morning, Mr. Reed." (Danielle)
"Okay Julian. Give mommy a hug." (Danielle)
"Be a good boy and have fun today." (Danielle)
"Oh come on. Some of us have jobs to get to." (Robin)
"Don't forget your lunch box." (Danielle)
"Bye Mommy." (Julian)
"Hi Miss Grey." (Julian)
"Good Morning, Julian. Come give me my morning hug." (Miss Grey, a hall monitor)
"Good morning, Mrs. Campbell" (Mr. Reed)
"Good morning." (Robin)
"Bye Knickerdoodle. Kiss, kiss." (Robin)
Courtney gives her mom a good-bye kiss then runs to class.
Robin makes a beeline to the shop. She has a full day and no time to waste.
Jackie is already there having some breakfast and trying to review the day's schedule.
"Good morning, Mom." (Robin)
"Hi dear. Do you know what's wrong with the computer." (Jackie)
"I uploaded new software yesterday. What's it doing?" (Robin)
"Well, I can't get the appointment calendar to come up." (Jackie)
"Well, let me put my stuff down and then I'll take a look. In the meantime, try rebooting it." (Robin)
Robin returns a few minutes later.
"So what's it doing now?" (Robin)
"It's almost up. (pause) Oh there it is. Had me worried there for a second." (Jackie)
"Good. The last thing I need today is computer problems. Our first appointment is in 30 mins. I need to go pull the dresses she wants to try on again before making a decision." (Robin)
"She's also bringing her bridesmaids. They want to try a couple dresses on today." (Jackie)
"I can't do bridesmaid dresses, today, too. You were supposed to schedule that for a different day. Did you forget that I was interviewing for the tailor position?" (Robin)
"Well, sort of." (Jackie)
Well, we will leave these two to sort out the schedule. So I wonder who's getting married? Hmmm.
