A concern for one's safety

Mr Boss after a bit of deliberation dropped the request for this .hence it fell off the weekly meeting radar

From: Miss Claire
To: Mr Les, Mr Mike


I can’t tell you how happy I am to receive this email.

I’d like to thank Mike, for always providing me with emailed drafts of many colours and holding many exotic images extracted from PDFs.

I’d like to thank Les, for always putting a space before the full stop, and not after it.

I’d like to thank Mr Boss, for his eternal search for medicinal honey, which lightens my day (reading about honey is pretty fun)

*cries* *is led off stage*

Keep it under your hat though

From: Mr Les
To: Miss Claire


No room already 2 chickens, a piece of string ,2 apple cores and 3 ideas stuck there

From: Miss Claire
To: Mr Les


*slight panic*

Sheesh, I know your sleeve is full too, what with the tissues, assorted aces and some 'lerts' for when you need to be extra alert.

Try the sheath on your ankle, the knife that used to be in there is still stuck in a back somewhere, I saw it last week ...

From: Mr Les
To: Miss Claire


Not fair - knife is at grinders along with teeth ... anyway a hatchet job is always better ... maybe need nice police belt with stun gun etc ?

From: Miss Claire
To: Mr Les


I popped out at lunch and got you one of those hard hats with drinking vessels on each side and long plastic straws ... that'll suffice

CODA

I sent Mr Les my paen to my time working alongside him, and he replied with more advice from his wife and some encouragement towards telling good stories instead of sticking slavishly to the truth. Still one of my most legendary bosses!
