So now we are all wondering, "Just in case _what_?"
Just in case he needs a spare briefcase? Just in case all the other
members of this group pour into his workplace and begin a session?
Just in case anyone asks about the bracing?
I know: just in case he runs out of topics of conversation. He can
always ask "Do you know what this is?"
Regards, Seamus and group.
