Hope you had a good weekend. I'd like for you to get the ball rolling on a story about the rising cost of leather and its effect on the price of men's luggage and accessories. We're looking for about 1,000 words, so you should interview some manufacturers, a few shoppers (you may want to go out to Bergdorf Goodman or Jeffrey for this) and at least three buyers for major retailers.
You have until Friday at noon to get all of this done. If you have any questions, please direct them to my assistant, who will be able to get in touch with me.

Also, while you're out, I need you to pick up my dry cleaning and a pair of shoes I sent out to be re-soled. Make sure to get a receipt from your taxi driver so that we can expense the trip.
See what I mean?
Have a good night, interns! More tomorrow.
