8:14 AM: Phyllis is humming atonally on her side of the cubicle. This has never happened before. Is this a new habit? I really hope not.
12:08 PM: Phyllis just asked Carson Kressley if he knew about Mrs. O’Leary’s whereabouts. He did not. Mrs. O’Leary has been out of the office for over a week. This is the 7th consecutive business day without her here. She is missed.
