Halloween had been absolutely insane, to say the least, but what happened after Halloween had been just plain frustrating. The day after the party, Vanessa woke up some time around 3:00, p.m. with a dreadful headache and sense of complete confusion that went well passed the normal hangover. It wasn't until she had started a pot of coffee and dared to pour herself a bowl of cereal that she realized something, she was supposed to be at work HOURS ago. When she called the hair salon to try and explain, she was treated like a crazy person. They had apparently called her when she was a half hour late, and she had answered calmly and very awake and told them exactly why she was never coming back to work. Vanessa cringed as the receptionist chewed her a new one, and all she could do was cringe. She hadn't been the one to quit, but there had been no point in arguing it, so she cursed herself and shook her head as she poured more cereal into her bowl, debating whether or not to use jack instead of milk in her cheerios. After what she had said to the salon, the only salon that would hire her now would be super cuts.
So that was it, she really had to decide what to do now, did she try and open up her own shop? If so would it be a hair salon or a vintage clothing store? Did she even really want a shop of her own at all? She found that she would miss Muldoons and the nightlife terribly. So Vanessa decided to wait it out and see what she should do, but she was thoroughly enjoying having more time to herself.
On this particular day, Vanessa was at Trader Joe's with a cart full of tortilla chips, salsa, homemade rye bread, chocolate bars with raspberry insides, and more than a few bottles of their famous 2 buck chuck wine. It wasn't exactly her usual, but it wasn't all that bad really. Dressed in a pair of blue jeans, green flats, and a scoop neck kelly green blouse, Vanessa continued her shopping, listening to her i-pod as she did so.
