Tired, she was disguised as someone who had all the answers. Women’s rights had made it possible for women to work, but there was still so much to do at home. The alarm went off in the morning, and after a heavy, hot, and humid night, all she wanted to do was go back to sleep. Was it really six o’clock? It only seemed like a few hours since she was able to close her eyes.
Coffee was in order and quick. Downstairs in seconds, the rest of the morning went by in a blur. She didn’t even have time to check her phone for emails. She would just have to hope that the meeting was going ahead as scheduled.
