As soon as I got to work I saw a phone message from Helaine. Google transcribes them for me now so I’ll let you see their “not quite” transcript.
The Greg reference is correct. She calls me Greg, I call her Helen. I guess you’ve got to be there for that inside joke.
The operative line is “you left your time on the cellphone.” Wanna guess what she really said? “You left your tie on the sofa.” I figured it out right away–no tie!
It is never casual Friday on TV. I went searching for a tie. A few of my more organized co-workers actually keep spares. I probably should too. I borrowed a nice tie from Ted.
Tonight at dinner I got something on it! There is now a vertical discoloration in a very obvious spot.
It will be cleaned before he gets it back, but this tie incident is so indicative of my life. You can dress me up but you can’t take me anywhere.
