I told her I have no problem working for a woman, but that her red hair (frickin' glorious, long and curly-- I hate her already!) could be a deal breaker. She laughed. Whew.
She wanted me to understand how straightforward and no-nonsense she was. I replied, "Oh good. So I don't have to apologize for being the same way," as I met her gaze. Instant understanding; like two gunslingers meeting for the first time.

My quest for obscurity-- of which this blog is a testament-- continues apace.
