The Head-Shaped Dent.

Here is a good way to cause trouble at work:

First you say to Minerva, “You should take that metal basket and hit Endymion over the head with it so it will make a head-shaped dent in the basket.”

If Minerva does this, you’re all set. If she does not, the next time you see Endymion, say, “Minerva said she was going to hit you over the head with that metal basket so it would make a head-shaped dent in the basket.” Then when Minerva says no, that is what YOU told her to do, say, “Would I say a thing like that?” You might have to practice your wide-eyed look of innocence, unless you are already really good at it, like I am.

If trouble has not yet ensued, you can later say to Endymion, “I lied earlier. Minerva never said she was going to make a head-shaped dent in the basket. She said she would make a basket-shaped dent in your head.”

Later on, when Pyramus takes one of the baskets, you can tell him that Minerva will probably hit him over the head with it, making either a basket-shaped or a head-shaped dent, depending. It is unlikely Minerva will deny this.

This trouble-making method will work in almost any workplace that has people named Minerva and Endymion. I don’t mention Pyramus is this paragraph, because doesn’t everybody know a Pyramus?
