I actually wrote this a few weeks ago, but the ol\’ blogger system was too bogged down to post it.

My main character, Jane, found her new life motto while shopping in the Lack\’s furniture store. Huge red banners hung from the rafters. \”No interest until 2007,\” they proclaimed to anyone who would look up at then. She looked at them carefully then approached one of the sales staff.

\”Would you sell me a banner?\”
\”They\’re adverstising signs, what do you need them for?\”
\”I only need one. For my mother. I want to hang it in my kitchen and whenever my mother comes over and starts to talk about fixing me up, I\’ll be able to point to it to explain my current personal policy about dating. No Interest \’til 2007.\”
