Aide: Good morning sir, here is your much needed coffee.
Michael Ignatieff: Thank you Jeeves. By the way have you seen my media scan of the latest news stories about me?
Aide: Nice weather we are having.
MI: Um, yes it is but I would prefer a rainy day over a sunny one. I get some of my best thoughts thunk on rainy days. (long pause) Now where is that media scan?
Aide: The dog ate it sir.
MI: Dog? I don't have a dog. I have a Burmese cat who like myself is a rather refined creature who would never resort to eating common things such as a paper.
Aide: Er, I have to go. I am pretty sure that I left a roast in the oven and my front door unlocked so......
MI: Somehow I am having a hard time believing that Jeeves since you are a vegetarian and you live in my basement. Is there something in that scan that you think I shouldn't see?
Aide: (pointing to the other side of the room) What's that? (running out of room while MI turns his head)
MI: Jeeves? Jeeves? (Goes back to drinking his coffee)
(a knock at the door)
MI: (Looks up) Come on in Bob.
Bob Rae: Good morning leader, how is your coffee today? Oh and I have a copy of today's media scan for you. (smiles as he hands MI a copy of the media scan)
