The Interview

Grown up.
New shirt. New earrings. New day.
Building by the lake.
Validated parking.
Click click click.
Red high heels on tile.
Elevator ride.
1, 2, 3....7.
Deep breath.
Smile.
Painted walls.
Receptionist in jeans.
Artsy.
Handshake.
Desks. Faces.
Panoramic windows.
Conference room.
Resume.
Is there anything in my teeth?
Is my hair out of place?
What am I doing with my hands?
Small talk.
Big talk.
Thank you.
Hope.
Hallway. Elevator. Lobby.
Parking garage. Silver Honda.
Shoes off.
Toes wiggle.
Sigh.
Sunglasses.
iPod. Shuffle.
Miley. Archie. Jonas.
Little girl.

Katie Katie Katie, you have fallen to the Disney craze! So much for the goodness of obscure musicians. . .just kidding. I do try to find good artists that are unlucky with receiving media attention. There are a lot out there. Love Dave Barnes and Missy Higgins. As for the other three I will check them out for sure.
