    Yes, thinking more on this, I can see that would work quite well.

    "Terry, what do you want for Christmas?"


    "Terry, what's your favourite form of thatre?"


    "Terry, what's your financial status, you in the black or in the red?"


    "Terry, what's your favoured technique for making garments?"

    Why am I thinking of a bunch of alien cops that look like rhinos?

    "Terry," if you're still in the profession 40 years later and reading this website, I will let you know that when I submitted the story, you were male.

    Oh, a fun aside to that story: Someone made yellow vests with "Lab Asst" embroidered to the lapel area. We were supposed to wear them on the job. Naturally, the "t" disappeared from them after a time.

    That's the thing I was being tortured with! A rhino policeman! Yo! So... No!!!

    It's a miracle the t was sewn on in the first place.

    So Argyle: this Terry/Theresa --- is she the Mechanical Engineer I knew (professionally)?

    No, his real name isn't even close. He and I moved on from that dopey help job to doing Fortran program in aerospace. One tiny WTF was the day he hauled me into a lab and showed me a box with an artificial horizon on it. He picked up the box, spun it around a bit and then set it back on the table and we watched in amusement as the ball lost its mind and spun randomly in its socket. I said, "dude, if that's in a plane that does that, I guarantee that the pilot won't take the slightest interest in that ball."
