Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, where you never know what to expect! This week’s photo prompt was provided by Marie Gail Stratford. Thank you, Marie!

This “Kip and Dredge” story is a little different, in that Dredge does not appear. I’m afraid he got lost in editing it down to 100 words. However, Tanya makes a brief appearance, her first since 2012. She’s the girlfriend of Junior, who’s a friend of Kip and Dredge and knows Kip’s dad. Tanya and Junior were the focus of Modern Art (as curated by Kip and Dredge), which is my only “Kip and Dredge” story that wasn’t written for Friday Fictioneers. I think that means I should be writing more. Hmmm.
I hope you enjoy the job interview!
Kip and Dredge: How to Go on a Job Interview
by Jan Brown
“Kip, I got you this interview ONLY as a favor to your dad. So do NOT screw this up.”
“Shut up, Tanya.”
“No, YOU shut up! Here comes the HR manager. Remember to shake her hand.”
“Mr. Kipinger? I’m Ms. Dixon. Let’s go into my office.”
Kip held out his hand as she turned around. Tanya sighed loudly.
“Tell me about your work experience.”
“Well, I did community service work on a ranch, picked up litter in the park, and cleaned up grafitti.”
“Any PAID work experience?”
“Not unless you count dumpster diving. Or selling weed.”
Ms. Dixon sighed loudly.
