A vague feeling that her life was, somehow, out of control, sent her flying to the refrigerator for comfort, to the vending machine for solace or to the snacks in her drawer for distraction. She found herself constantly trying to nibble away her frustrations.
A lean, trim five-foot-six, her weight had always been easy come, easy go. Now, however, it was a lot more 'come' and a lot less 'go.'
With an accounting degree and six years in the work place behind her, Billie Bliss came to a decision. Her weight and frustrations were simply manifestions of the PROBLEM. Step one was to return to college and take special courses from the new and widely acclaimed Dr. Sheldon Dodds Ackerman.
Dr. Ackerman, a confirmed bachelor, and sometimes cynic, panicked when the dean asked him to teach an all-female class, Women In Business. Under duress, he had reluctantly agreed.
It was probably inevitable that the personality of the contradictory Miss Bliss and that of the eccentric and somewhat stuffy professor, Dr. Ackerman, would result in conflict.
Billie Bliss gradually began to find Dr. Ackerman terribly annoying, and he, on his part, found her, more than most of the opposite sex, totally illogical.
