Reaching for the sky

No Ted today, which is always a good thing. I don't even care especially whether he'd legitimately sick or simply malingering because he's being worn out by having to work three or four hours a day.

Then The Invertebrate arrived this morning and checked his voicemail when he noticed Ted was missing. Wearing a look of surprised disbelief (otherwise known as the "wtf?" expression),  he repeats Ted's message:

"I woke up this morning with sore eyes, so I won't be coming in today. If you don't mind."

I'm not sure if dissolving into laughter was the correct response, but it seemed the only suitable one.
