Carry On Tuesday #167

"All the world's a stage", Lyla breathed to herself as she walked into the office. She merely had to pretend she wasn't rattled by the impending interview. Everyone had to go through one of these more than once in order to get a job, but Lyla still felt nauseous at the thought of having to answer why she belonged at Moulton Inc. She drew in another breath and tried to fall back on her four years of college training as she took a seat. She quickly fixed her eyes on a crack in the wall so as to avoid being intimidated by her competition occupying the tiny lobby.
"Miss Lyla Fisher?"
Her mouth went dry, but she quickly placed a confident smile on her face. "All the world's a stage", she repeated to herself as she rose with her head held high and entered the manager's office.

A great way to deal with anxiety! Sort of similar to public speakers envisioning their audience naked.....
