“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.”
