Nothing you can do about it.

The rain continues to fall …

Bill:
You know, this rain isn't a bad thing at all.

 

Tara:
Absolutely. When you have significant injuries, postponements are a good thing. Chances are the makeup game, or games if this weather continues as predicted, will occur after Trot and Nomar return.

 

Bill:
Did you see where the Orioles are going to be fined and possibly have to forfeit a game because of an illegal roster move?

 

Tara:
Yes. And they can't recall anyone to replace Bedard on the roster until Wednesday. Not debilitating, still, you want a full roster in case anything strange happens, like a 13 inning game.

 

Elsewhere in the office, Mike tracks down the new designer, Susan, who has asked that everyone call her 'Circle' …

Mike:
Sus … er, Circle, you had a chance to mock anything for that Papa Ginos RFP?

 

Susan:
No, I'm still waiting for my Mac to get networked … Waiting for SysOps

 

Mike:
Still waiting. But you waited yesterday. The SysOps guy should be here.

 

Susan:
He didn't say for sure he'd come. But said I should wait here.

 

Mike:
[Mike picks up on the allusion] And if he doesn't come?

 

Susan:
We'll come back tomorrow.

 

Mike:
And then the day after tomorrow.

 

Susan:
Possibly.

 

Mike:
And so on.

 

Susan:
Until he comes.

 

Mike:
You're merciless. [Laughs.] Can't you just use a PC in the meantime?

 

Susan:
[Continues to reference Beckett] I don't hear a word you're saying.

 

Mike:
I'm asking you if you're tied.

 

Susan:
But to whom? By whom?

 

Mike:
To your Mac.

 

Susan:
To My Mac? Tied to the Mac! What an idea! No question of it. (Pause.) For the moment. [Laughter]

 

Mike:
Right, then. So we wait. [Laughs] You're going to fit in here just fine … You are a Sox fan, right?

 

Susan:
I'm thinking something here about Popes and bears and shits in the woods …
