DOOR TO DOORHelen Argyll walked smartly up the front walk, up the three stairs, and firmly pressed the doorbell button and waited for someone to answer. It was midmorning, and for a lingerie sales woman, this was one of the best times of the day to catch the lady of the house. Usually her husband and kids were off to work and school, and she had already had time to clean up the kitchen and make the beds, and by now was usually ready to take a coffee break. Helen listened intently for signs of life behind the thick front door, and seconds later she could hear foot steps approaching rapidly. The door swung open and a tall brunette of about twenty five or so said, "May I help you?" Helen, sticking out here business card quickly introduced herself and stepped inside the vestibule and then explained, "I represent the "Ultra Woman" lingerie company and I am canvassing the area, showing ladies our new fall line, I'm sure that I have some things that would be of interest to you, may I please come in!?!" This was always the moment of truth for a salesman, you had to get into the house to make a sale, and Helen could see that the young woman was wavering back and forth, so she took the initiative once again and took the young woman by the arm and led her into the living room while saying, "I just have some of the prettiest things you've ever seen, I'm sure your husband will be more than pleased when he sees them on you!" The young woman now seemed resigned to the fact that Helen was going to be there for awhile and asked her if she would like some coffee. "Mmmmm," hummed Helen, "that sounds divine, why don't you get the coffee and I'll get my things unpacked, okay?" "By the way," Helen continued, "what is your name?" "Deliah, if you can believe it," she said while rolling her eyes, "but everyone calls me Dee!" "Okay Dee, you get the coffee, and I'll get ready!"
