Emily and Phoebe

Amanuensis

Emily has hurt her wrist and cannot write. I have a sore throat and cannot speak.

We have the bright idea of working together on her homework: she tells me the answers and I write them down.

I would like to report that this was a productive collaboration characterised by mutual respect, in which Emily did not once lose her temper and the phrase 'ungrateful toad' never passed my lips.

(Oh, who am I kidding...)

But you just said you had a sore throat and couldn't speak... LOL

I'm sorry it didn't work out. :-)

Well, it was sort of a whispered croak - so quiet in fact that Emily couldn't hear me. (I'm not *that* foolhardy!)
