Boys will be boys... to the girls' dismay!
A/N: Brit-picking by the very gracious mspinto64. For wendymr, based on her prompt "one-upmanship".


“Jean, this is getting out of hand.  Can’t you intervene?”

“Unfortunately, no.  They’re playing this game on their own time, and mostly not in the office, though the spoon-balancing competition caused disruption in the canteen, and Milligan was snarled at for merely approaching Robbie’s house of cards.”

“Men!  Perhaps I can do something.”

The following morning, Laura murmurs, “I think the nonsense is over.  I dropped a suggestion in Robbie’s ear.”

The Terrible Two stagger in, looking queasy.  “I didn’t think Hathaway could look any paler.  Laura, please tell me you didn’t initiate a drinking contest.”

Laura smirks.  “Curry eating.”

I loved the mental picture of Robbie's house of cards.

Thank you. For me, the image that lingers is the spoon-balancing on the nose.
