Mondays are the pits for any employment, but especially if you work for Edelweiss Catering. Mondays are deemed marketing days” by Ursula. Since catering can be rather slow on the first day of the week, except for the odd luncheon every now and then, we are asked to trade off doing street marketing. Today it happens to be my turn. Lucky me. Street marketing consists of holding a sign on the street and passing out flyers to drum up business—in a German dirndl, no less. With my dark blonde hair in two braids, I basically look like Heidi. Well, a slightly slutty Heidi, as the top of this dress really emphasizes my chest area. Poor Justin is working with me today in lederhosen. His costume is worse than mine, by far. Adam used to love it when I wore this outfit for work, the few times he saw me in it, at least. I tried to hide it from him for as long as possible, but it was inevitable he would see me in it someday. I had expected a horrified look, but instead he looked turned on by the getup and asked me if I would wear it for him later. I agreed at the time but never followed through. Justin and I paste on fake smiles as we stand out on the corner of Wall and Broad Streets, Justin twirling the fairly large rectangular sign and me passing out quarter-sheet-size flyers.”This is degrading,” Justin says through smiling, gritted teeth. “You say that every time,” I say, keeping my smile intact as well. If you hate it so much, then why not find another job?” I try to hand out a flyer to a passerby who completely ignores me.And miss seeing Ursula? What would my life be worth then?” he says with a cheeky grin.
