Just one Day!
Early 7AM at Vickie and Joe's apartment
Joe: Hey, Sweetie, time to get up? What not even a grunt?
Cat: Purrrrrrrrrrrrr, purrrrrr!
Joe: Hmmm, she must have dashed out when I was taking my shower!
(Meanwhile Vicky hurries to the bakery to pick up her order for her gals at Vickie's Vintage.)
(Next at the Vickie's Vintage)
Vickie: Vickie's Vintage, how may I help you? Yes we have two appointments open this afternoon, each between 1-2 and 2-3. Yes masks are required and we have gloves and sanitizer available for your use. See you then, Miss Emilie and Miss Colette.
Vickie's Vintage, how may I help you? Yes, we are still open with appointments for your shopping safety. Six people are allowed in the store at one time for shopping.
We have an appointment between 2-3 open, we also have our website, VickiesV@blank.com.
Sure, many of our items are available online. Okay, we will see you at two this afternoon, thank you, bye.
An hour later after coffee and a complete wipe down of the store.
Zoe: Vickie, everything is ready upstairs.
Vickie: Great, please answer the door!
Zoe: It's Joe, Vickie.
Joe: I guess the honeymoon is over...not even a goodbye this morning.
Vickie: I hollered at you in the shower, but you were singing. I hollered, "JOE, I'm leaving, I LOVE YOU! "
Joe: Well, then, you deserve a good morning kiss, since I almost jumped on the cat in bed thinking it was you.
Vickie: (*giggle*) Have a good day!
AND HER WORKDAY Continues...! 9:30 AM
Vickie takes the phone calls and deals with the online orders. The phone and the computer emails never stop.
Zoe: That dress is perfect for you, Tanya. Shall I wrap it up.
Tanya the bride: Please do, and I need some shoes and hose. And I should have everything. I can't believe we are finally getting married. We were originally scheduled for March, but I think a park outdoor wedding this Sunday will do. And this dress is perfect!
Zoe: I hope you have a glorious day and a happy life!
Tanya: I hope so, the weather seems so up and down now, is it Fall or is it still summer?
Tanya: Thanks again!
Carly: Miss Colette, if you can't find anything down here, you can try upstairs, Zoe doesnt' have anyone up there right now.
Colette: This is perfect and I vant deez one too, and zee other one in blue.
Many hours and customers later, the door stops banging, the phone stops ringing, everything is wiped down for tomorrow.
And Joe shows up to take Vickie to the bank.
Carly: Goodnight, Officer and boss, see you tomorrow.
Vickie: Thanks, Carly. We have another full day of appointments tomorrow, and I shipped out 14 orders today. We are starting to get requests for Halloween though, we will have to decide what to do?
Nikki: We could make the whole shop Halloween, we have enough stock...for just four weeks? Will people venture out for Halloween in masks, LOL? I wonder.
Joe: Yea, they probably will, more than they do now. It's a gamble though? Halloween is usually a busy night for the police department, but every night is Halloween now.
Vickie: I'll have to check the numbers and what online venues are doing for the season, and see what might be happening?
Much later, back home, Joe is grilling supper!
Vickie: Hey Officer, aren't you a bit under-dressed.
Joe: It's hot in here, some idiot downstairs has their heat cranked up already, at least the deck out here is cooler. Dinner done in just a few minutes. How about some white wine, Sweetie.
Joe: Salmon, corn, I'm starving!
Vickie: I'm afraid to ask, how was your day?
Joe: Okay. But, I don't know which is worse, the politicians, the protestors, or the looters. Things seem to be getting under control, today anyway. I just need a day off, the whole department needs a time-out.
Joe: HEY Cat, that is not for you...you have to get down. (He puts a generous serving of salmon on Cat's dish)
Vickie: That's why I love you...you take care of both of us!
Cat: Prrrrrrrrr, prrrrrrrr!
Vickie and Joe talk, Halloween, the shop,
the online business,
and more talk,
when are we getting married?
Joe says if and when I can get some time off...?
Joe: I'm stuffed, are you for dessert?...(Wink!)
Joe: Okay CAT this is another thing we don't share!
With Chicago Halloween events in question,
SHOULD VICKIE's VINTAGE
Be a Halloween Shop for a month?
