The close proximity of Mimi's nose to her monitor screen was an indication of both a need for glasses and overwhelming excitement. ^300 She was finally upgrading her ancient hunk of phone-shaped plastic to a fancy new Samsung Galaxy. ^300 She'd never had a phone that others might envy, but that was about to change. ^300 Her mouse was poised over a "Make Purchase" button; awaiting only the satisfying 'Click.' ^300 Then "Shipping information" popped up on her screen and Mimi paused.

Where should Mimi have her new phone shipped?

Home Work

Mimi entered her work address into the available fields and selected "Free Ground Shipping." ^300 Now she just had to wait. ^300

Two weeks later, ^150 the fateful day arrived. ^300 Mimi's excitement was only slightly hindered by her need for coffee as she awaited an email from reception. ^300 An email alerting her to the presence of her shiny new phone. ^300 Before long the '(1)' appeared in her inbox.

What should Mimi do next?

Go get phone Get Coffee

Mimi took the stairs two at a time, ^150 hopping over a crushed water bottle and almost tripping over her own feet at least twice ^300 (maybe she should have stopped to get coffee ...). ^300 She caught her balance just outside the lobby door and took a deep breath.^300

Sally, ^150 the nasally receptionist looked bored, ^150 "Oh, it's gone already."^300

"What?" ^300 Mimi didn't understand.^300

"Yeah, ^150 someone picked it up already." ^300 Sally tapped on the desktop with her nails, ^150 which should have been perfectly manicured if she were going to bring attention to them in this fashion, ^150 but were chipped and chomped to the quick.^300

What should Mimi do next?

Cry Ask about package

Mimi barely escaped the lobby with tears intact. ^300 She collapsed onto the first step, ^150 shoulders shaking.^300

And thus your story ends. ^300 If Mimi is such a sop that she cries at the mere momentary misplacement of a new phone, ^150 clearly she does not deserve to play Lifeline on Android. ^300 She would probably cause Taylor's demise instantly.

Obviously coffee is a necessity, ^150 so in order to truly appreciate the arrival of her new bestie, ^150 Mimi should stop at the coffee maker. ^300 She tapped her toes while she waited for the fresh brew. ^300 Finally, ^150 the scent of fresh roast made it's way into her nostrils, ^150 giving her the pre-boost she needed. ^300

Tommy appeared in the break-room, ^150 mug clutched in his hands, ^150 eyes smudged with sleep. ^300 He'd want coffee too. ^300

What happens next?

Go get package Talk to Tommy

Mimi knew it was rude to leave Tommy behind a word, ^150 but the phone was more important right? ^300 Mimi took the stairs two at a time, ^150 hopping over a crushed water bottle. ^300 She caught her breath just outside the lobby and then pushed through. ^300

Sally, ^150 the nasally receptionist looked bored, ^150 "Oh, it's gone already."^300

"What?" ^300 Mimi didn't understand. ^300

"Yeah, ^150 someone picked it up already." ^300 Sally tapped on the desktop with her nails, ^150 which should have been perfectly manicured if she were going to bring attention to them in this fashion, ^150 but were chipped and chomped to the quick. ^300

What should Mimi do next?

Cry Ask about package

Well, ^150 obviously Mimi asked for more details. ^300 Who would cry over a missing package? ^300

Sally's fingernails tapped. ^300

Mimi: ^150 "That was my package. ^300 Who claimed it?" ^300

Sally: ^150 "Dunno, ^150 some chick." ^300

Mimi: ^150 "Was she tall? ^300 Short? ^300 Old? ^300 Young?" ^300

Sally: ^150 "Eh, ^150 sort of more tall than short. ^300 More young than old." ^300

What should Mimi do?

Keep talking to Sally Investigate on own

Mimi continued plying Sally with questions and was provided with unsatisfactory answers. ^300

This is the end of your story. ^300 Obviously Mimi doesn't really want to find her phone if she were going to continue asking for help from Sally. ^300 I imagine they are locked in a battle of words and wills to this day. ^300

Being a generally polite person ^150 (and because Tommy was a generally attractive male specimen ^300 or speci-man), ^500 it would make sense for Mimi to stop and talk to Tommy. ^300

"Hey Tommy," ^150 Mimi said mid-coffee sip. ^300

"Mmmmmuggmmmgrrrr," ^150 said Tommy. ^300 He was still on his first cup of coffee. ^300

"How's it going?" ^150 She asked. ^300

"Ugggghhh, good," ^150 said Tommy. ^300

"I'm getting my new Samsung today!" ^150 Mimi said, grinning. ^300

"Oh yeah?" ^150 Asked Tommy. ^150 "It's a good day for packages." ^300

"Huh?" ^150 Asked Mimi. ^300

"Oh, Belinda just got a bunch of jewelry." ^150 Said Tommy. ^300

"Huh . . . ^150 cool," ^150 said Mimi. ^300 But what she was really thinking was 'Yawwwwwwwn, ^150 boring!' ^300

What should Mimi do next?

Keep talking to Tommy Go get package

Your game ends here. We’ve probably all figured out by now that Mimi is a flirt who enjoys Tommy’s company. ^300 At this rate, ^150 Mimi will never make it to reception to pick up her phone. ^300 But, on the bright side, ^150 Tommy will probably be her boyfriend soon and won’t mind texting her on her old broken phone ^150 (until Mimi stops receiving his texts and they break up because of lack of communication). ^300 Someone who wants to talk to boys so much instead of dealing with responsibilities ^150 is not the person we want helping Taylor. ^300

What should Mimi do next?

Ask Sally if Belinda took package Investigate on own

It dawned on Mimi, ^150 listening to the tap tapping of Sally’s fingernails, ^150 Belinda had an excellent manicure. ^300 And as she was thinking of the well coiffed Marketing Manager, ^150 she remembered hearing about her jewelry package. ^300

"Was she pretty?" ^150 Asked Mimi. ^300

She wasn't that pretty..." ^150 Sally hedged. ^300

"Did she have dark brown curls?" ^150 Asked Mimi. ^300

"I guess her hair was kinda dark and frizzy," ^150 affirmed Sally. ^300

"Do you have a package here for Belinda?" ^150 Asked Mimi. ^300

"I maybe, might." ^150 Tap-tapped Sally. ^300

"GOTCHA!" ^150 Said Mimi. ^300

What should Mimi do next?

Talk to Belinda Don't be dumb. Mimi should talk to Belinda.

Mimi peered over Belinda's cubicle wall, ^150 clutching her package between her hands. ^300 Speaking to Belinda always made her nervous. ^150 She was so pretty. ^300

"Hey Belinda," ^150 she squeaked. ^300

"Oh hey", ^150 said Belinda casually. ^300

"Did you, ^150 um, ^150 grab my package maybe?" ^300

"What?" ^150 said Belinda. ^300

"Well, ^150 my package was gone. ^300 And yours was there, ^150 so I thought maybe you grabbed mine by mistake." ^150 Said Mimi. ^300

"Who are you?" ^150 Asked Belinda. ^300

"Oh, ^150 um, ^150 I'm Mimi." ^150 Said Mimi. ^300

Belinda picked up an unopened package from her desk and studied it. ^300

"Oh yeah," ^150 she said, handing it over. ^150 "Here you go." ^300

You got the phone! What next?

Once her beautiful new phone had found its way into her grasp, ^150 Mimi had two very important things to do. ^300 A) ^150 She downladed Lifeline right away to save Taylor ^150 (who had been waiting that whole time) ^300 and B) ^150 She called Tommy to ask him on a date. ^300 He said yes ^150 (we would assume from the way Mimi is grinning). ^300

Mimi wondered if she should try to smell something, ^150 to pick up a trail. ^300 She looked left, ^150 then right; ^150 up, ^150 then down. ^300 The stairs to her left would lead to the main floor of cubicles. ^300 The elevator to her right would take her out of the building. ^300

What should she do?

Interrogate employees Start crying

Mimi peered over the first desk she could find. ^300 Will was bobbing his head to music streaming through his headphones. ^300

"Will?" ^150 Mimi called quietly. ^300 There was no response. ^300

"Will!" ^150 Mimi said more loudly. ^300 Nothing. ^300

Finally she poked him. ^300 Will jumped a mile out of his seat. ^300 Will was very springy, ^150 but sadly, he was not helpful when it came to lost packages. ^300

What should she do now?

Continue Interrogating Cry

The next desk Mimi came to was Belinda's. ^300 Belinda was too attractive for her own ^150 (and everyone else's) good. ^300

"Hey Belinda," ^150 Mimi squeaked. ^300

"Oh hey," ^150 said Belinda, casually. ^300

"Did you, ^150 um, ^150 grab my package maybe?" ^300

"What?" ^150 said Belinda. ^300

"I'm missing my package and I was wondering if you accidentally grabbed it ... " ^150 Said Mimi. ^300

"Who are you?" ^150 Asked Belinda.^300

"Oh, ^150 um, ^150 I'm Mimi." ^150 Said Mimi. ^300

Belinda picked up an unopened package from her desk and studied it. ^300

"Oh yeah?" ^150 she said, handing it over. ^300 "Here you go."

Mimi opted to have her phone shipped home as she'd had a package or two accidentally picked up by co-workers. ^300 No chance of that happening if its deposited on her porch. ^300

After a week of careful tracking via UPS, ^150 Mimi was excited to read that her package had safely arrived. ^300

What should Mimi do next?

Go right home Finish working

Mimi peered over her shoulder to make sure no one was watching her and then grabbed her coat. ^300 A long lunch it would be! ^300 She very much wanted to collect her phone. ^300

It was at a stoplight half-way home that catastrophe struck. ^300

Mimi's very soon-to-be-extinct phone slipped from her pocket and dropped with a thunk to the floor at her feet. ^300 The distraction and excitement combined were too much. ^300 For a moment her foot slipped off the break and ... ^300

SMASH. ^300 Bumbers met. ^300

What should she do?

Run from the scene. Exchange information

Your story ends here. ^300 If Mimi lacks integrity such that she would hit and run, ^150 she is not the person we would want to help Taylor. ^300 We hope she finds direction and peace at some time in the future. ^300

Mimi sighed and rested her head on the steering wheel. ^300 Why? ^150 Why today. ^300

There was a tap on her window. ^300 Mimi looked up. ^300 At least he didn't look angry, ^150 the other driver. ^300

Very attractive, ^150 yes. ^300 Not very happy, ^150 true. ^300 But not angry. ^300 And very attractive. ^300 Plus his name was John. ^300

What should she do now?

Flirt with the man. Finish up and go home.

"Hiiiiii", ^150 said Mimi. ^300

"So, ^150 I think you hit my car," ^150 said Mr. Handsome Face. ^300

"It was the only way I could think to get your attention," ^150 said Mimi. ^300

John stared and blinked. ^300

"Jooooooke." ^150 Said Mimi, making jazz-hands. ^300

Handsome-Faced John did not seem to be won over. ^300

What should she do now?

Flirt more with John. Finish up and go home.

While you get personal points for being persistent, ^150 this is where your story ends. ^300 Mimi would clearly not be good at helping Taylor as she can't take a hint. ^300 Also, ^150 she should maybe not flirt with men who she's just hit with her car. ^300

There it was, ^150 perched on her porch, ^150 as though it were waiting for her. ^300 Mimi picked up the pacakge and cradled it close. ^300

In short order the phone was charged up and Mimi was helping Taylor on his/her journey in Lifeline. ^300 And then the phone rang. ^300 Who would have thought, but it was John. ^300 He admitted an accident was an odd way to meet, ^150 but he'd like to take Mimi out for coffee. ^300 Yes please! ^300

Mimi finished out her workday like a good employee. ^300 But, ^150 as is often the case with those who do their duty, ^150 Mimi was re-payed in a horrible way. ^300 When she reached her porch, the package was gone. ^300 Where it had obviously sat, ^150 it appeared as though a blender had gotten loose. ^300 Small pieces of cardboard littered the stoop and nearby lawn. ^300 Some seemed to be damp, ^150 though it hadn't rained that day. ^300

What should Mimi do next?

Take a look around Start crying

Mimi collapsed onto the stoop, ^150 shoulders shaking, ^150 sobs wracking her small frame. ^300 She buried her face in her hands and cried. ^300

And thus, ^150 your story ends. ^300 If Mimi is such a sop that she cries at the mere momentary misplacement of a new phone, ^150 clearly she does not deserve to play Lifeline on Android. ^300 She would probably cause Taylor's demise instantly. ^300

Mimi followed the path of soggy cardboard around the side of her house. ^300 That's where she found a random brown and white spotted puppy watching her suspiciously. ^300 Anytime she came close, ^150 a low growl would emit from the puppy's throat. ^300

What should Mimi do?

Find something to distract the puppy. Start crying.

Mimi looked around her to find something that might help. ^300 The puppy didn't look too scary, ^150 but she didn't want to risk it. ^300 It could have secret rabies or something. ^300 She found a delicious looking stick, ^150 shook it a little to get the puppy's attention and threw it. ^300 The puppy looked at the stick, ^150 and then back at Mimi. ^300

What should she do?

Throw the stick again. Dance like a crazy person.

The second time Mimi threw the stick, ^150 the puppy seemed to decide he wanted her to stop. ^300 He took to claim it. ^300 Right there, ^150 where the puppy's derriere had just been, ^150 and still warm, ^150 was the box with her phone inside. ^300

How should she react?

Be grossed out. Retrieve the phone.

Mimi waved her arms over her head like a monkey and pranced in a circle, ^150 knees almost reaching all the way to her stomach mid-march. ^300 Her crazy-dance did the trick. ^300 The dog stared at her like she was a nutto and took off yelping. ^300 Right there, ^150 where the puppy's derriere had just been, ^150 and still warm, ^150 was the box with her phone inside. ^300

How should she react?

Be grossed out. Retrieve the phone.

Your story ends here. ^300 If Mimi is going to be grossed out by some puppy-smudges, ^150 she is not capable of dragging Taylor through the muck and mire. ^300 We’ll need to find another heroine to help bring Taylor home. ^300
