5. Brenda “Billie” Burnham, Account Supervisor, Advertising

Library #05
Brenda is a very special person. Still in her 30s, she runs her advertising agency’s largest account. She loves her job, makes very good money, has a large apartment with river views, has a place in the country, and is miserable. She is lonely. Would love to find someone to share her life with. She married right out of college. It didn’t work out. By the time she finished her MBA, he dumped her. Since then, just a couple of romances that amounted to nothing much. And things have not improved lately. She’s had her eye on a really nice guy. But he is five years younger than her, is her subordinate at the agency – in creative, and happily married with two kids. More times a day than she’d care to admit, she wonders,“Why does this always happen to me? Why do I always go for idiots or men who aren’t even in the realm of possibility?” She hasn’t a clue. Or the time to figure out what to do about it.
