I'll Risk It

I don't know if I'm cut out for office work. Certainly I can handle the pleasant telephone manner, "Good afternoon, this is Blah Blah Solutions. Nelly speaking." I even answer whilst grinning like an ape smiling, as I'm certain that this can be transmitted along the telephone wires. Maybe if the office was busier it'd be better. Today I received my first telephone call at 2pm. It was Matty and she was only calling because I'd called her previously to ring me to check the phone was actually working.

Today I mostly researched the last 35 years of Doonesbury. I reckon it could be my specialist subject in Mastermind. If Bert was a Doonesbury character he'd be Zonker Harris. I used to fancy Zonker but now I think I'd go for B.D. Was that a Freudian slip?

boredom and clockwatching, not good. :)

It has its moments. Just the other day a lorry lost its load just outside the office door, Thankfully no damage done but it diverted me for at least 20 minutes.
