I never thought I'd feel that way about him. I mean, Dave? Come on. But, well, it was sorta like what happened with Bill and that whole limo thing, but I don't want to go into that. There was no 'moment' this time, just one of those light bulb-over-your-head kind of things. But Dave. Daaave. The man is a coffee addict, for one thing. And then there's that whole Green Acres thing. And he's Canadian. I still don't know if I've forgiven him for that one. And he was with Lisa. Everyone saw how that worked out.

"Uh, right Dave."
"Thank you."

Just press the button, and both he and I hear the call. Hmm, Dave is getting a new laptop, how exciting.

"Sorry, Dave, picked up the wrong line." Click.

I wonder if Dave suspects anything. Oh well. Now, where did I put that nail file...
