My Lucky Day

Deli diaries: This morning my manager looks at me, eyes gleaming, "Ella do I have a surprise for you" as he pulls out an official piece of paper. "Look! You got a raise, it's your lucky day!"

I am genuinely surprised. I rub my weary eyes in disbelief and read the official documentation.

.25 cents. An hour.

"Lucky you!" 
Yes lucky me.
