100 words, Katie, mid-80s

Kate was a small, lithe woman with the aura of a ballerina, and a voice that sounded like soft wind chimes. When confronted with belligerence, which was pretty common in our office, she would just say "ohhhkaay!" and giggle. She really won me oven when she told me that when she was in college she and her friend had a pact—when going out to expensive restaurants, over-order and bring the leftovers home for the other to share. She called in sick on her first day at work at the sleazy publishing company. Who calls in sick on her first day?
