Ink Blot

I’d just hung up my coat, flicked on my desk lamp, powered up my computer and taken a seat when Frank walked into my office.

Frank: It’s going to be a great day, Double A. Our big presentation is ready to go, the holidays are almost here and my Christmas shopping is all but done.

Me: Glad to hear it. Hey, not to burst your cheery day bubble, but have you looked at your shirt lately?

He looked down and saw the dime-sized ink stain on his shirt.

Frank: Ah nuts, a leaky pen!

He pulled the uncapped pen from his pocket.

Frank: Ah crap, I forgot to cap it after I signed that last TPS report. Hey, it kind of looks like an ink blot test. What do you see when you look at it?

Me: You mean besides a moron who forgot to cap his pen?
