As the skyscrapers rolled past the window, she asked me about my summer, and I told her I’d worked as a waiter on Fire Island, a famous resort town, a sort of gay Hamptons, off the coast of Long Island. She sighed enviously, told me she was a lawyer and added that with every day in the office she missed her “carefree” days as a student waitress.
