Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

Oh no!  I wasn’t able to update for a few days!  I got a little sick late last week and Sabby insisted that I stay in bed.  She even made me some chicken soup!  Don’t worry, it wasn’t the virus (I was tested), just a little something going around.  Unfortunately, I had to put off starting the job though because the test didn’t come back until Saturday.  They let me start on Sunday though!

It’s a… job, I guess.  Not a bad job, not a really fun job, just a job.  They taught me how to use the cash register and gas pump machine, and gave me a little uniform and everything!  It’s not cute, but it’s cute on me, because I’m cute!  Modest, too!

After a couple of hours I got the hang of it and was pressing buttons along with the best of them!  I had a few problem customers but I learned that just looking innocent and not saying anything until they run out of steam, and then pretending like they didn’t say anything, works pretty well.  They get all upset again and I just do it all again.  Finally they ask for my manager, and, well, he’s standing right there and tells them to get out.  He’s a little strict, but he seems to look out for us.  He doesn’t take it from customers, and I love that!

But maybe that’s just how you get after years of owning a convenience store.

One perk is, I get to eat a sandwich or something for lunch!  The job doesn’t have many perks, but like I said, he has an attitude of “you take care of me, I take care of you”, and a free lunch is a part of that.  I have to be careful not to get fat now!

Dave is a little worried because sometimes people rob stores, but I think it’ll be okay.

Don’t worry about me!  I’m feeling better!  And I have a job!

Love you all!!!  ❤️
