A Day In The Life At A Small Business

Late Nights, Early Mornings

“Beep! Beep!” goes the alarm at 7 a.m.

Finally, a Day Off

Cindy’s alarm goes off at 8 a.m. She smirks and turns it off. For the first time in eight days, she has a day off. No rude customers, no boss calling her the wrong name. Just her, Butch the bulldog, and a blank canvas, waiting for her brushes. This last month, The Sweet Vine had been great to her. She’s always wanted to work at a restaurant with fine wine. In fact, she was well on her way to being the next great sommelier — even if it meant grinding out a few years as a server in a restaurant that would often forget to put her on the payroll. Still, her job at The Sweet Vine had also been exhausting.

Problems Upon Problems

Right. The vet. And I’m king of Norway. Horatio hits the “end” button.

In an Alternate Reality

The alarm goes off at 7 a.m. Horatio rolls over, remembering a pleasant dream of picnicking with Cassandra, his late wife. Last night he and his managers at The Sweet Vine opened a couple of bottles of wine; they had spent the evening getting everything ready for National Wine Day today and needed to “sample” the selection. He had a slight headache, but it was worth it.
