Connor peeked around the door to Sam's office. "Sam, have you seen Fluffy?" Fluffy was Connor's teddy bear.
"I have not."
"Can I check if he's in your room?"
"Yes, but then straight to bed."
Connor darted into Sam's bedroom. Sam heard him moving about ... a few minutes later Connor trudged back out into the office. "He's not there. I can't find him."
"Well, go to bed, and tomorrow we'll look for him."
"OK." Connor brightened. "I guess I can cuddle with my backup bear."
FatSam looked away from the screen. "Backup bear?"
"You know, like something that's not as good as something else is a backup. I'll cuddle with my backup bear and I'll be OK, and we'll find Fluffy tomorrow."
I don't know if it's related or not, but I had ridiculously large .pdf files being generated for Last Dancer, and incredibly slowly at that, on my main system; then Thursday evening the main box refused to boot. I've got the doc backed up elsewhere, so at a minimum I'll send the .rtf file out this week, and maybe the .pdf too if I can get around to setting up the notebook to generate .pdfs.
The .rtf file is the right size, anyway.
