Ah, the suspense...

Ted E. returned from yet another week of leave on Monday. In a staggering coincidence, the Stress Fiend called in sick, appeared on Tuesday (when she knew I was going to be absent on a training course) and has been missing again for the two days since.

Cynicism levels are running high, and it's anyone's call whether she'll come in tomorrow: on the one hand, she's clearly on a roll and it's been a while since she had a good sick-leave binge; on the other, turning up on Friday and denying herself an extra-long weekend looks marginally less like malingering.

Hmm. It would also negate the need for a medical certificate, so that may tip the balance.

What I'm also half-expecting is that Ted will be "sick" tomorrow in protest.
