Every item in the trays is on it: listed, described, and priced. I ﬁgured out a while ago that a piece of paper is much better than pointing to each piece of jewelry while saying a number, then sometimes having to go back and repeat a price since people couldn’t remember so many at once. And a tangible sheet of paper makes it seem as if the prices exist separately from me, so if a customer is teetering, I can drop the amount a bit, instantly becoming good cop to the price sheet’s bad. Roxanne studies the ﬁgures, looking from them to the trays and back again.

I understand this to mean that she has a maid. ” It takes me a second to ﬁgure out what she’s talking about. Our mother thought anklets were trashy—hooker jewelry. Not that Momma ever would have used that word, but then she didn’t have to, with the expression she’d have on her face. ” My sister is the director of a small foundation that helps children with AIDS, a fact I have never forgotten, so why she can’t remember what I make I have no idea.

I ran to ﬁnd him, dashing through the house, crossing soft rugs, sliding on polished hardwood ﬂoors, taking the sweeping staircase two steps at a time, until ﬁnally I found him in his study sitting in his large leather chair listening to an old, scratchy jazz LP.
