Chapter 9 ALL WORK NO PLAY
A couple days later, Marney found out, she didn’t get the job at the store, but she did take the application into the yogurt shop and they interviewed her, too. She did so well, they gave her the job on the spot.
“Hallelujah!” Jane said.
I have never heard Jane say that before. Marney was pretty happy about it, too. She likes to be busy. It’s only temporary until she gets back onto the team, but that’s okay. She’s happy, so I guess I’m happy. Maybe I can still go over there and hang out sometimes. I love frozen yogurt, and besides I’ll do all I can to spend time with my big sister. After all, she’s the only one I have.
“Marney, you wanna go to the park and shoot some hoops?” I asked her.
“No, Squirt. I gotta go to work.”
“Can I go with you to work?”
“I won’t bother you.”
“I’ll be quiet.”
“No you won’t.”
“I’ll try to be quiet.”
“No you won’t, Squirt, and I wouldn’t ask you to either.”
Marney rolled over to me and patted me on the head.
Well, it didn’t take long to figure out I did not like work. They took Marney away from me and now we are never going to see each other except right before bed. I am not so happy about this anymore. Why did she have to get that job?
