“I’ve ridden the tiger ragged. That tiger, it’s rolled over on its blazing back and put up its paws and just asked me to stop.”
– Glenn Duncan, I Lucifer
I really was expecting a slow day today, kittens. It’s below freezing so no one’s about, my phone has rung exactly twice, and until 11 this morning I was staring at my empty inbox wondering how I would fill the time. Woof, was I misled!
Hennessy and I are wrangling dozens of student uniforms that have gone “missing” over the past few months since we have nothing to give to the handfuls of new students we keep hiring. Shockingly, all these “missing” uniforms have turned up in the very locker rooms students and supervisors have sworn blind they’ve not been in for months.
I’m up to my elbows in paperwork finding arrest records, dating from before I was born, on microfiche, running background checks, and logging hours of training for our officers. Goodness knows whether or not I’ll get lunch before 3 at this point!
However, that quiet time was semi-productive. After a period of Wiki-surfing, it is now a driving ambition of my life to achieve this honor!
Can I manage this without moving to Nebraska? Somehow I feel as though I mingle well with the august company. Admiral C. Small Dog of the good ship HMS Guppy!
