55 Fiction Friday: All Growns Up edition

So, some good news: a very good friend is moving to town. SCORE! I'm really psyched, and it's all happening so fast - she will be here by the end of the month! She was here with her mom doing some whirlwind apartment shopping (and she found a place!)

Good news, part II: her mom called me and asked me to hang out - and I'm going to see her, and I'm very, very, much looking forward to it. She's a lot of fun - and she's superawesome! She was my Bar support team, and provided me with a healthy lunch all three days of the Bar exam. And then took us to Chez Panisse when the exam was finally over. (I guess Good News, part III might be that I'll probably see her mom more often now.)

Friday checks its bank balance.

She filled out the check, trying not to squelch the rising panic when the handwritten amount wouldn’t fit neatly on its line. (“two thousand five hundred and sixty three and 00/100 dollars”.) She looked it over with a jaundiced eye. Such a small piece of paper, and yet, allegedly, this was the sign of adulthood.

Damn girl. I hope that shiz is not your rent. Because that would be breaking NYC standards...

tamasha: HA! No, but it isn't all that far off, either.

roonie: My plan to make everyone move to SF is working! Now, I must work on you!
