"Oh Hi Plato. While you are here I have a message from the VC. She will come to your first lecture after Easter to thank you and your students for their help with the pensioners lunch club. Between you and me she is a little suspicious about how the whole lunch club thing started and who placed the advert....
(Long silent pause)
Oh er, um, she would like to know if she has to wear the present the student's gave her when she comes to thank them? "
Oh I would think that it would be entirely appropriate.
"I'll tell her. I think that she is more than a little nervous but doesn't want to appear not to be a good sport, especially in front of your students....
She has asked why she is saying thank you to over 120 students when you officially only have 34. Where did the rest come from?"
I don't know they just started to materialise
Tell her I look froward to seeing her in two weeks time in Lecture room B. It is a little packed in there at the moment but it will do her good to see. I am particularly looking forward to seeing her wearing her 'present'. The students put a lot of effort into it - you might like to mention that.
Have a good easter.
"Er yes thanks..."
