We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Pouring water on a drowning man

More horror stories from the sickness monitoring briefings. I'm so glad I wasn't in any of T.Aldous' discussion groups! Norman*, unfortunately for him, was in one of them. He's just back at work from long-term sick with stress. We split into groups to discuss how we would deal with case studies, including one about someone who has a nervous breakdown. So there was T.Aldous and Norman sitting in with a bunch of complete strangers when Himself says:

"This is a bit sensitive really. You wouldn't know this but Norman's just returned back to work after having a nervous breakdown of his own."

* Ordinarily I'd observe Norman's anonymity but he wears his stress badge with pride: "It's my T.Aldous Huxtable Campaign Medal," he declares.
