Early Afternoon
JH,
Are you from a very large family, then? I only have one brother myself, pain that he is.

My mountain has grown yet again. Do you fancy adding to your load if it stays quiet? Though, on second thought that's a terrible idea. I'm already in hot water with my boss as it is. Word to the wise, don't go off script during a kiwi delivery.

Hopefully your afternoon stays quiet. Mine has been thus far.

late afternoon
S,

I do, there were seven of us, but we lost a sister to the laughing plague a few years ago, unfortunately. Two of my siblings are married with children, the rest of us are still working on it. Well the youngest one is just that, as well, too young.

It's still quiet and I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. I'm almost caught up, but I don't trust it. I was even able to each lunch uninterrupted, that so rarely happens! I'm afraid I know nothing about kiwis or Moroccans so I would be of a disservice to you. Having little distractions is nice for a change.

Still wishing you luck.
Cheers,
JH

Late Afternoon
JH,
Seven siblings?! What a chaotic house that must've been to grow up in. I'm sorry to hear about your sister. Were you two close?

I should've mentioned I have two younger half brothers, as well, but they're significantly younger and I haven't seen them in ages. They more feel like cousins than siblings sometimes.

Happy to hear the other shoe has yet to drop! Perhaps it'll be an early evening for you. I, on the other hand, will be shackled to my desk for the next century or two. One of my colleagues is a bit of a character and decided heading home to his wife and kids on time means I'm stuck with his mountain too. Such fun.

Kiwis and Moroccans sound more fun than they are, I promise.

before clocking out
S,

It was always busy and I never lacked in playmates, so there's that. We caused a hell of a lot of trouble, but all in good fun. She was, most unfortunately, never in the best of health, the Plague was just too much. We were close, baby sister and all. She would have just graduated last year. My youngest brother is going into his sixth year, so I understand age gaps pretty well.

It was a most uneventful day, probably the first I've had since I started and I've been here a while. I hope you were able to put a dent in your paperwork, mine is caught up. Low blow by the colleague, you should return the favor sometime. I'm clocking out on time for the first time in a long time.

I really would like to know more about kiwis and Moroccans, I cannot tell if this is a euphemism, or you're honestly dealing with fruit.
Cheers,
JH

Early Evening
JH,
The Plague was a nightmare for many. It's terribly unfair that your family was affected when already dealing with a sick child. She must've been just about ready to go off to Hogwarts, then? I'm sorry...

A dent has been made, but I must admit I'm envious of your escape. I'll likely end up heading home only to sleep before I'm due back in the morning. The colleague has far more experience than me, and is therefore permitted to commit such crimes against his colleagues. He is, admittedly, not my favorite person. I once set a jinx at his desk that caused ink to splatter every time he used his quill. One of my finer moments, if I do say so.

If I were to answer your curiosities I would have to kill you. And, considering I have only the most basic details of your appearance to go off of, murder will have to wait.

first thing in the morning
S,

Thank you for your sympathy, she only got to enjoy a couple of years at Hogwarts unfortunately. She did enjoy it thoroughly, however. Always a glass half-full kind of girl, enjoying life to the fullest.

Hopefully you were able to get a decent amount of rest at least, between bouts of paperwork. That is a deviously delightful act of revenge. So subtle, yet so frustrating. I like this side of you Miss (I have been under the assumption of Miss.) S, very intriguing.

That is most upsetting. Now I'm curious about your department. Mysteries is it?
Cheers,
JH

Mid-Morning
JH,
A few hours, but such is the life. I ended up being called in before sunrise, so coffee will be my best friend today. The mountain of paperwork is more resembling a hill, at least. It'll be back up to a mountain by noon though, mark my words.

I am, indeed, a Miss. As for the revenge, that's but the tip of the iceberg. My roommate usually faces most of my jinxs, unfortunately for her, but she should know better than to get under my skin like so. You have to keep life interesting somehow, don't you agree?

Not mysteries. I considered it, though.
S.
