I’m excited to announce that the latest Perk at Work Short Story “This Beautiful Life” is now available for your reading pleasure. This story gives some deeper understanding into the mind and soul of Moxy.
In this story, Moxy gets upset with always being hit on simply because of her attractiveness. In a fit of anger and frustration (and also self-reflection), she decides to get grubby for a day to see if guys will pay attention to her simply on the merit of her personality. In the process, she meets an odd stranger who flips her whole experiment on it’s head.
So grab a cup of coffee (or, if you are like Moxy, a hot tea), nestle in, and enjoy “This Beautiful Life.”
p.s., I’ll be updating my store to include printed versions of the story as well. Stay tuned!
Work, by itself, is just a means of making money. The beauty of working is it allows us to interact with people — to meet and connect with a variety of folks. I have met some of my best friends through work. The workplace was an environment where we could learn about each other and build bonds.
Perk at Work is about our experiences as humans. Sure, at it’s core, it is about a lowly cafe worker who chats it up with his regular customers. But they are sharing moments of their lives together, learning and sharing bits of information and, hopefully, learning to care about each other. Is there any greater purpose in this life than to love and be loved? Well, maybe to get the perfect cup of coffee but we can do that while we talk.
