Josie sat at her desk, a pillow under her battered backside. She knew she deserved everything she'd gotten last night. After all, Joe had warned her.

Someone switched on the radio. Ironically, the Dovells' 1963 hit, You Can't Sit Down, was playing.

Toni walked over.

"Are you okay?"

"I'll survive."

"You should have listened to Joe."

"I thought I could handle it."

Joe walked up, placed his hand on Josie's shoulder, and said, "I'm sure you won't pull a stunt like that again."

"You bet I won't," Josie promised. "That's the last time I try to ride a mechanical bull."
