“Tell me about yourself, Millie.”
Nina Winchester leans forward on her caramel-colored
leather sofa, her legs crossed to reveal just the slightest hint of
her knees peeking out under her silky white skirt.
I don’t know
much about labels, but it’s obvious everything Nina
Winchester is wearing is painfully expensive. Her cream
blouse makes me long to reach out to feel the material, even
though a move like that would mean I’d have no chance of
To be fair, I have no chance of getting hired anyway.
“Well…” I begin, choosing my words carefully. Even after
all the rejections, I still try. “I grew up in Brooklyn. I’ve had a
lot of jobs doing housework for people, as you can see from

bob that de-emphasizes her double chin. She’s in her late
thirties, and with a different hairstyle and different clothing,
she would be very ordinary-looking. But she has used her
considerable wealth to make the most of what she’s got. I can’t
say I don’t respect that.
I have gone the exact opposite direction with my
appearance. I may be over ten years younger than the woman
sitting across from me, but I don’t want her to feel at all
threatened by me. So for my interview, I selected a long,
chunky wool skirt that I bought at the thrift store and a
polyester white blouse with puffy sleeves. My dirty-blond hair
is pulled back into a severe bun behind my head. I even
purchased a pair of oversized and unnecessary tortoiseshell
glasses that sit perched on my nose. I look professional and
