I wake up to a crisp, clear and sunny morning. The fresh coffee smell beside my bed tempts me. One long sip of the coffee and my senses kick in! I have a long day ahead. At least that's what the papers at the foot of my bed say. Glancing at the paper I see appointments scheduled. A cardiologist, neurologist, psychiatrist… wow! Is my "Pills and Capsules"pharmaceuticals company doing so well? A knock on the door takes my eyes away from the appointment list and some other gibberish on the paper.

“Hi there! Good morning” I turn to see a young girl with a chirpy voice at the door. “How are you today dear?” She seems to be a new helper! I need to speak to the manager about the frequent change in housemaids. “I’m Emily, can I help you with a nice long bath?” I wave her off but she doesn't want to go. I assure her I will call her if I need her.

I wear my long flowery gown and she escorts me to the breakfast table. I complain. ‘It is so crowded and noisy. Elena, could I have breakfast inside my room please? I'm already running late for the day.” She looks around, shakes her head in disagreement and insists I have breakfast with everyone. I reach up to the nearest dish. The label reads pasta. I must applaud the cook for trying out new dishes. I drop some while helping myself with a serving. Clumsy me!

The maid, what was her name again..yeah Edna...age sure is catching up with me. So Edna ushers me to meet the doctors through the day.

At the end of the day I ask Esther “why were the doctors asking questions about me and not the deal we were to make with my company?” She replies. “It's a general protocol to have a full medical examination before signing any important deals.” Sounds convincing? I can't decide. Anyways, I've had a long day and I tuck myself into bed.
