Otto was off sick today. Despite the additional work, this is a good thing.
But we had a minor crisis involving one of Otto’s files and I had to ransack his desk in search of some paperwork.
Otto’s desk is – I suspect – much like the inside of his head. A dark, cluttered and scary place.
I found the file and a number of other troubling objects.
Perhaps the most intriguing thing I came across was his “to do” list from yesterday.
It didn’t have much to do with actual “work” but it sure provides some fascinating insights into the weirdness that is Otto.
Otto’s Thursday “To Do” List
1. Breathe. Remember to Breathe
(I’m hoping this is a calming exercise and not just a basic reminder on one of the necessities of life, but with Otto, honestly, who knows?)
2. Write Friday’s “to do” list
(He wrote one thing. It was “Don’t get sick!”)
3. Compliment Clark on his shoes
(His Wednesday list had “tie,” and Tuesday had “breath.”)
4. Give “problem” files to Alan
5. Rat on Mildred
6. Call Attorney/Dog Groomer/Masseuse/Orthodontist
(I’m hoping these aren’t all the same person.)
7. F1444-33/Ottoclock@ 3.00p.m. sharp!
(Just unnerving. If I hear ticking, I’m out of here.)
