Mr. Price managed a small insurance company in Minnesota. One cold day in January, April McKenzie, one of his employees, asked him for time off. "I've been called into jury duty, Mr. Price. When my government asks for my help, I have to answer the call." Mr. Price rubbed his forehead. "We need you here, April, but they need you too. Take the time." At first Mr. Price thought that they needed April, but as time went on he noticed that they managed fine without her. When April returned, most of her body was bright red except for around her eyes. Pale white circles ran from the top of her eyebrows to the bottom of her cheeks. Sunburned flesh surrounded the pale circles and her hair was tightly braided into rows. Mr. Price narrowed his eyes and looked her up and down. "April, step into my office. There are some things we need to discuss," Mr. Price said ominously.
Where was April?
Vacationing somewhere sunny
Testing experimental beauty products
