100 words: Siobhan, mid 80s

Siobhan was a woman who was as big as the state she came from—Texas. A six-foot Rubenesque redhead with an un-ignorable presence, she made the time I had to put in working in the accounting department tolerable. She was the office manager and kept all the cranky menopausal accounting ladies cool and happy. In her real life she was a singer (soprano) and a regular at the gay piano bars in Greenwich Village. I liked to imagine that tight jeaned men with moustaches feted her nightly and called her Bubbles. We mourned when she returned to the Lone Star state.
