‘I can’t do it,’ she announces a few days later.

‘Do what?’ I ask.

‘I can’t go for that meeting. I’ve called that woman a whole lot of names. Can’t face her. No way.’

‘If you’ve done it, you’ve got to face it,’ I say.

‘I don’t have to do anything. I’m quitting.’

‘Winners never quit,’ I quote I-don’t-know-who. ‘Quitters never win.’

‘Maybe I don’t want to win.’


She shakes her head, draws herself up and says in a determined manner: ‘No. I have to win this one. What do I have to lose? There’s nothing I’ve said or done that I have to feel guilty or sorry for, right? They are the ones who should be feeling rotten.’
