Carl and Carli

Carl Masters
replied
curtly
to all
their questions

He barely
concealed the
impatience
and
annoyance
he felt
truly felt

Carli Meadows
replied
sweetly
to all
their questions

She dared not
conceal the
eagerness
and
excitement
she felt
truly felt

24 hours later
Carl and Carli
got the news
Carl at $55,000
Carli at $45,000

For the same job

Because Carl was
quite disagreeable
and Carli wasn’t
