In the office at work, my colleague Hal is looking at the equipment book and trying to work out who borrowed something without bringing it back. We write the name of the person and the thing they took and the date we expect it back, and normally we can just recognise the handwriting of the person who signed it out.
“I don’t know who signed this out,” says Hal.
“Whose handwriting is it?” says Annie who is sitting at the desk.
“I don’t know,” says Hal, placing the book on the desk and pointing at it. “Have a look. It’s in really girly handwriting.”
I walk over and have a look at the book.
“It’s my handwriting,” I say.
“Sorry,” says Hal, “but it is very girly.”

Great save, mate.
Also I’ve never really noticed your handers writers (or handwriting). I wouldn’t say it was girly, just neat.
You do have very neat handwriting. I’ve often silently admired it. Wouldn’t say it was girly though.
Thanks guys. I was a bit down about my handers writers. Now I feel pretty chuffed. For the record, I’ve always thought Ian’s writing to be intense and Kev’s to be boisterous.
My FACE is pretty intense too. Kevin’s face, well, doesn’t warrant mentioning.
Kev’s face is pretty boisterous.
Its also often smug and angry. Sometimes all three at the same time.
Not many faces can do three things at once. I think from now on, if anyone asks me what I think of Kev’s face, I’ll say it’s a top notch multitasker.
It can do more than I can. I can only manage two tops.
Two tops is normal. Like, a t-shirt and a hoodie or something. If you could manage more than two tops you’d just be a bit too warm.
what about a vest, a long sleeve t-shirt and a coat? Is a coat a top?
A coat is only a top when it’s a hat. A hat can be a sock when it’s between two boxers. Boxers looks good on a Christmas tree.
That’s cleared that up then.
What about cummerbunds?
Cummerbunds are superfluous nonsense that should be wiped from the planet in a large fire, the kind of which hasn’t been seen since we last burned Ian’s book warehouse.
You’re saying they should be cummerburned?
In some sort of cummerblaze?
Perhaps we should start a cummerbonfire.
A cummerblazing great cummerbonfire. We can have cummerbonfire toffee and cinnamon cummerbuns.
I really wish you both would stop swearing so much. It’s creating a bad vibe.
cummer-on Ian… get with the scene.
This sounds excellent. I will definitely cummerlong to enjoy it.
I ain’t part of no scene, fool.
Wait, what was that about burning my warehouse?
Nothing. Nothing you need to worry about.
