Moral support



It's a Monday morning. This is me in the study providing moral support for Gail as she begins another week of writing up her PhD thesis. I've offered to help her with one section, the acknowledgments. For example, she could say:

"Above all I would like to thank my faithful friend Hamish, who has provided such steadfast encouragement throughout the process. Without his help, both at home and in the field (and even occasionally in the lab, but shhh don't tell anyone) this thesis would not have been possible. In recognition of this I award him a lifelong supply of lamb bones, fried liver, cheese, cake, and whatsoever additional treats he may desire, at all times, and at his convenience."

That's the sort of thing people write, isn't it?

It is certainly the thing I would write, Hamish, if anyone should ask me to write. Did Gail ask you to write it? Very, very nice.

Kisses,
Stella
