Not Such a Tough Sell

Jill: I picked up a voicemail from Sharon today. She's got The Perfect Job for me at her company. Only hitch is that we'd have to move back to California.

Husband: (Stunned silence.)

Jill: It would depend on the job. And the numbers. And the timeline.

Husband: (Forehead has become deeply furrowed.)

Jill: If it's my Dream Job, I want to consider it.

Husband: (Starts shaking his head with his mouth wide open.)

Jill: Open your mind, Dude. It could be a great opportunity.

Husband: Who are you?

Jill: I'm someone who wants a shot at her dream job. Trust me. We'll only consider it if it makes sense.

Husband: (Pause. Pause. Pause. Pause.)

Husband: Okay.
