“Just a few more questions and you’ll be out of the hot seat!” the interviewer said.
I bet she used that line in every interview. She was being courteous, but without much enthusiasm. I wondered how many people she had interviewed today.
I smiled at her. My face was starting to hurt from all the smiling. The chair had made a funny noise the last time I moved, so I was holding myself stiffly, but trying to look relaxed.
Relaxed but with excellent posture, that is. My leg muscles were beginning to tremble.
