Draft One

"These really need to be fill-in the blanks." Sam stared morosely at the neat little check boxes for Animal/Mineral/Vegetable, but the mission report refused to spontaneously reformat itself.

"I just draw a box under them that says other," John offered helpfully, buried under his own mound of IOA paperwork. "Saves a lot of time."

"Saves you a lot of time," Sam snorted, "I'm the one that has to fix them afterwords, plus remove all of the swearing." John grinned his best 'I'm to cute to hit' grin.

Sam waggled her pen at him meaningfully, and he went back to his paperwork with a 'yes ma'm' and a slightly subdued smile.

Sam stared at the form a little longer and then finally just checked all three, ignoring the specific instructions not to do so that the IOA had included in bright red letters. She still hadn't brought herself to ask why they had included prohibitions about interpretive dance and finger painting.

Draft Two

"These really need to be fill-in the blanks." Sam stared morosely at the checkboxes for Animal/Mineral/Vegetable, but the mission report refused to spontaneously reformat.

"I just draw a box that says other," John offered helpfully, buried under IOA paperwork of his own. "Saves a lot of time."

"Saves you time," Sam snorted, "I have to fix them later."

John grinned his best 'too cute to hit' grin.

Sam pointed her pen at him meaningfully, and he went back to his paperwork with a 'yes ma'm' and an unsubdued smile.

Sam finally just checked all three, ignoring specific instructions not to do so stamped in bright red letters. She still hadn't brought herself to ask why they had included prohibitions about interpretive dance and finger painting.
