The engine whined against my attempt to go faster. The yellow lines of the road went by on my left in a blur. The ocean on my right didn’t seem affected at all. It created the illusion that I wasn’t going fast enough.
Linda taught me to use the register, and by Tuesday she had the nerve to leave me alone for an hour while she had dinner. I told her if I gave away all the money in the register it was all on her. She told me she trusted me and my math abilities. I didn’t mention that I sucked at math.
I own two books by Kasie West and I’ve been meaning to start one of them soon. I’ve heard so many good things about her writing and her books. This one sounds really interesting and I got a good laugh at that 56 part.
