When I finally meet her eyes again, she has this knowing smirk on her face.

 

“What? You didn’t really think I’d be able to get by just working at the ‘Great Ole’ Mushroom’, did you?” she raises her hands and gestures to the space around her to emphasize her sarcasm. “The only reason I’m still even here is ’cause I need an alibi to keep my boyfriend from being nosy, and Larry is pretty good at covering for me. I’ll be over and done with this crapper soon enough.”

 

I’m pretty shocked by what she’s telling me, and I can only manage a shrug in response. “I’m not judging.”

 

Okay, I’m totally judging, even though I know I have no right to. A slight but noticeable pause follows before she speaks again.
