A Mid-li​fe career change

This might be the shortest short story ever!

Include the following in your story: chef* upgrade* monkey* turkey* fashion *team* harden* noon* elevator * baste

I took the turkey out of the refrigerator to make sandwiches for Julie. I wiped off a bit of gel that had hardened around the leg and pulled the meat from the bone and placed it between two slices of bread with a bit of mayo. I tucked it into her Monkey lunchbox.

I folded my ‘Kiss the Cook’ apron and placed it in the kitchen drawer. It wasn’t the best fashion statement, but it made me laugh. I was smiling from ear to ear. At noon, I would be taking the elevator to the top of the space needle. Yes, today is the day I’m going to upgrade my kitchen apron for an apprentice hat. I will be joining the Chef Andrea’s team at the Sky City Restaurant. Now the next Turkey I baste will come with a paycheck. Life couldn’t be better.
