If you need any help in the meantime you can contact my editors, Lou and Lindsay.
In the long run, I'm pretty sure this'll help me to get a greater understanding of the issues surrounding absence from work.
If you need anything while I'm away, you can go and see Lindsay or Lou, but if you're offended by unfettered views of the human body, it's probably best to just phone or email.
I'm sorry I can't get you any, but I've only brought enough money for one and it looks like there's only a few left as it is.
The guy in front of me said he'd been waiting for two days already, so I guess this means I won't be able to make it back to the office until 14th November.
If you need anything while I'm waiting, please contact Lindsay or Lou.
I wouldn't get too jealous if I were you, most of the big ones have gone and to be frank, the ones that are left look a bit limp.
I appear to have upset one of the local aristocrats regarding which one of us will be out of the office until 7th November.
An altercation ensued and he has challenged me to a duel.
I was given the choice of weapons and have opted for pistols, but what my antagonist doesn't realise is that I am a crack shot and consequently I feel confident that it will be I who is away from the office until 7th November.
If you want to discuss the rules of engagement, please contact Lindsay or Lou, my batmen (or batpeople, if you wish)
