After finishing her lecture, Tina returned to her office to a stack of purchase requests waiting for her authorization and to begin planning the organizational committee meeting for the annual California University Arts and Exhibition that is held every spring break in March.
“Paula” Tina spoke after pressing a button on her desk phone
“Yes Ms. Kennard” a woman’s voice sounded through her phone speaker
“Can you get Perry Drake on the line for me”
“Sure thing” Paula responded
After pressing the button to turn off the paging system, Tina turned to her cellphone that was currently ringing and saw Mallory was calling her. She quickly put in her earbud
“Hey Mal” she answered
“How’s the first day going”
Tina groaned “The usual you know. I sign my life away the first couple of weeks then the dust settles. And of course I have to start planning the annual arts and exhibition for the spring. I wish I could delegate this to someone in the department but I’m stuck with it because Dean Shows won’t put it in my budget to hire someone to plan these events and art shows the campus relies on for donations. Plus I find out this morning the university just signed this massive network contract with Stratton Technologies for this new network system and all the Department heads are suppose to meet with the representative sometime next month. So you know it’s just a day in the life of a department head” she rambled on
“I’m not the least bit jealous” Mallory replied chuckling
“Of course you aren’t. But I’d rather be sitting behind this desk then behind some bushes or in the woods catching some spouse or significant other in the act” she stated looking through the purchases orders in front of her
“Hey now. I have you know that I conduct surveillance right from the comfort of my own vehicle and I have a super high powered lens that can see the pores of any type of skin up close and personal” Mallory retorted which resulted in an unseen eye roll from Tina
“Well good for you Magnum PI” Tina replied sarcastically “So what pulled you away from your life of stalking to call me?”
