If I fax some information through to you, can you pass it on to your boss?

Absolutely. Send it through and I will make sure it gets to her. Perhaps I will even summarise it for her through the medium of interpretive dance.

Er, okay, if you really want to.

I do what I have to do.

I didn't know your job required interpretive dance skills.

Yep. It's in the position description, right between "Must be a team player" and "Must possess advanced computer skills": "Must be able to express higher administrative issues through interpretive dance."

Well lucky for you you're good at interpretive dance.

Actually I'm not. But I stumble my way though it. Fortunately for me, it's not a very common skill set.

That must be a handy bargaining chip when Performance Review time comes around.

Yes it is. Although I do sometimes wake up in the night, gripped with the fear that somewhere Mikhail Baryshnikov is looking over my position description and thinking, "Hmmm, this does look interesting..."

I like to use semaphore, but to each his own.
