Most of the time I eat lunch at my desk out of a Tupperware bowl...

 :laugh: :laugh:  At this very moment, I am eating lunch at my desk out of a Tupperware bowl, which I also do most of the time.

Nice to see they're finding more things in common, and I like how honest Henry was in admitting to the deficiencies in his mind-reading skills!  :laugh:

And I see Henry takes his Boy Scout training seriously.  Not only is he true to his "Scout's honor," he follows the official motto to always "Be Prepared."   :laugh:  Wonderful dialogue!  Thanks, Louise.

uh oh, don't tell me there's an army of prosecutors out there with Tupperware bowls in the mini-fridge in the DA's office!?

hahahah.  and thank you, Marie - I'm not sure what I'd do without your daily comments on my chapters!

Okay super spoiler here:  during my insomnia of Sunday night I was mulling over the possibility or likelihood of Paula, Henry, or the both of them, having unprotected sex, even if only once, and I played out the entire story line in my head.

And then I backed out and thought... there is NO WAY a 30 year old woman with that much law school behind her and a good job, PLUS a single 40 year old local man with a long history of comfortable bachelorhood, would ever come together to throw caution to the wind in a moment of passion.

But tell me I'm wrong here.

Stellar dialogue between and among everyone! Nice to see that Carol had a date.

It'll be interesting to see just how low Stevens keeps his head.   I think it would be fascinating to watch Henry deal with him.   Reynolds absolutely cracks me up  - brightening at the request to clean the coffeepot!   :laugh:  Every office needs (and usually has) a Reynolds.   Mighty interesting sequel you've already got going here. Thanks, Louise!

Yes, they all have a Reynolds, I'm sure!  And re: Stevens, he was the officer in charge of the investigation of Pete Perdue's assault who screwed up the APB to apprehend Wilson Brand in Taking Chances.  And I wonder whether any of you remember who Drew is?

Hmmm..... well, I'm not sure you could say NO WAY - I mean, never say never, right?  And even though Paula and Henry both seem to be eminently practical, who's to say that a night of classical music followed by too much good wine wouldn't cause either or both of them to be less careful than usual.  Or Henry could just have the bad luck of buying a box from a bad batch of condoms!  ;D

It's always nice to listen in on Colson and Edna's coffee break chats.  They both love Ellery so, and I like that Colson is able to get a little "mothering" himself. 

Sticky situation with Katie Ann and Laura.  Laura is still her mother, after all, and little Stevie her brother.  And from the sounds of it, the chances of big Steve taking time off of work to care for Laura or his son are nil.  I just hope she isn't roped into staying there too long.  Helping out for a couple of days is one thing, but taking on Steve and Laura's responsibilities long-term is another!  And, somehow, I think Pam is going to enjoy being "adopted" by Jeremy and Nick and getting undivided attention from Colson and Edna.  If Katie Ann gets wind of that, I'll bet she hightails it back to Tourmaline -  "toot sweet," as Wes would say!   :laugh:  Thanks, Louise!
