And a Wrap


“Did you manage to balance the accounts yesterday?” Harold ran his finger down the columns of the open spreadsheet, his lips moving as he totaled the numbers flashing by. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust the computer to add it correctly, he just wanted to be sure they were correct.

“It’s in the can,” said Jasfoup glancing up from his crossword. Now that he knew who set them for the Laverstone Times, he could complete them almost without reference to the clues.

“Good,” Harold totaled the column, pleased to see the computer was correct.

Jasfoup made no comment, content that by the time Harold found out that by ‘can’ he meant ‘toilet’ it would be somebody else’s problem.
