So my editor, who claims she believes in having more women reporting "hard news," sends me out on yet another human interest piece on some cop who threw away a semi-brilliant career to open his own place in some cubbyhole near the run-down and desperate section. Oh, and could I pick her up a caramel macchiato on my way back?

"Thanks, honey. That's a good girl."

I'm not kidding. She actually said that, although she'd never dream of calling me "babe."

After I walk halfway to the address she gave me just to blow off some steam, I think about quitting. But where would I go? Home to Daddy? So he could call me honey for real, while the trophy steppie made some snide comment about "too much education and not enough smarts," like she could talk. No frickin' way!

Better to just do the story, I tell myself, as I knock on the door of this little office. And that's how I meet Max, who has an office that's a mess, a caseload that's almost laughable, and a budget that barely fits a latte'. We get to talking...and talking, and somewhere, I stop taking notes and just listen.

That was three weeks ago. Now, I'm working with Max.

He doesn't call me "babe," either. He calls me "dollface." But he never, ever tells me what a "good girl," I am.

There's a job open at the paper now, and an editor who needs a long overdue caramel macchiato. You might get it if you show up with one. I sure don't want it, so good luck....

....Honey!
