Julia didn't take on just any customer. She had more discretion over who's fantasies she fulfilled than most service industry pawns, and the money was much, much better. She never negotiated. No one got a break on the terms. No guys came in pairs or teams. (Those clowns mystified Julia.) Oh, it wasn't always the most glamorous gig. The post-emotional bleakness sometimes got her down, especially during winter, when the weather made her feel like she was living in someone's sinuses. But the good times came easy. Julia stayed calm. She never found it hard to float above all this.
