thank god hugo and lefty are there. even without a box cutter and a set of lock picks they should be able to untangle whatever insane situation Handsome gets everyone into, more or less in spite of themselves (i think it goes without saying that Handsome will in fact get everyone into some insane situation).

Perhaps in all of Handsome's situations, insanity is the norm, and thus it's the "normal" that are "insane"? Alternatively, not.

Cheers,

Really? Do I have to pay attention? Can't I just buy attention drinks or something. That's how it works with pshrynk.

sure, if you want to. i do that on days when i'm feeling distracted, myself. the good news, attention is a real lightweight when it comes to zcds, makes for a cheap date.

I'm all for cheap dates and reasonably priced prunes.

Ohhhhh. So that's your excuse! I've been on vacation -- that's mine. But I'm glad you didn't get TOO far ahead of me; I needed time to catch up to the thread of the story. I'm back now; you may continue.

"Hugo?"

"Yeah, Lefty?"

"How long have we been this suitcase?"

"About four days now."

"Does this mean a contingency has happened?"

"No, more like Pshyrnk got sidetracked."

"Oh. Is he knitting?"

"No, I suspect he is working. But don't let mum hear you use that word."

"Oh. Hugo?"

"Yeah, Lefty?"

"Can we use the box cutter to get out? It's awfully hot in here."

"Sorry; Pshyrnk's work was an unplanned contingency."

"Ummm. What's an unplanned contingency?"

"It's something you know is going to happen, but desperately hope won't so you make sure you can't cope with it when it happens. It means we're stuck in this box till pshrynk stops working, Lefty."

"So what do we are we going to do?"

"Ask Marc to send some more ZCDs to Pshrynk by otter courier."

"And that will get us out of the box, Hugo?"

"Well, it will certainly get Pshrynk out of the office...."
