Well. As I said, I slid down the corridor, whispering a cheerful melody, and was on the whole quite happy with my day. Suddenly I hear the unmistakable sound of a wet one. A stinker of magnitude. In fact, for a few seconds, I thought it was a very wet little lake that made a noise in the room I just passed. Wtf, I thought. That’s the room where the new super fresh colleague is sitting.
