Suddenly, off to Work

We had a nice Friday night tonight. Paula and Daniel watched a movie and sat with us in the living room. Everything was calm and nice (except in the movie, which was a crime story). Then, out of the blue, Paula got to know over the telephone that she was expected to work today and was about half an hour late. She had to go immediately. Dutiful as she is, she did. We all usually know before, if Paula will work night, but none of us knew tonight. It was, apparently, all due to a missunderstanding, Paula had not received notice that they wanted her to fill in tonight. Well, she will get paid, but we miss her more tonight than her ordinary work nights, since we had thought she would be home. We hope this will not be repeated.
