(crumped on her desk)
Dear Bill: I've made a
Couple of sandwiches for you.
In the ice-box you'll find
Blue-berries--a cup of grapefruit
A glass of cold coffee.
On the stove is the tea-pot
With enough tea leaves
For you to make tea if you
Prefer--Just light the gas--
Boil the water and put it in the tea
Plenty of bread in the bread-box
And butter and eggs--
I didn't know just what to
Make for you. Several people
Called up about office hours--
See you later. Love. Floss.
Please switch off the telephone.
