It is hard being a business woman in this day and age. However, I made a successful career for myself. Even more surprising was I did it alone. My darling husband found another muse, a little tramp on 12th and Main. He was a weasel of a man, and I don't know what I saw in him.

The young raccoon wrapped the ice pack in a heavy duty tea towel that her husband kept stealing for the kitchen. She didn't blame him though as it proved equally useful in the kitchen as in the tea room.
The tea room lights stayed off as Mika wandered through it to her favorite plush chair. The armrests were just the right height that she could rest her elbow and ice her face in comfort. She hadn't taken proper care of herself during the allergy season and a raging infection had set it. Her doctor sent for a compound to a nearby apothecary, but it would take another dismal night for it to be prepared.
The young raccoon pressed the ice to her face and felt relief. A simple juggling act allowed her to use one paw to look through the newest tea catalog. She passed the tea selections themselves, as she had plen
