A week was all it took. Monday they replaced her on the waterways biodiversity committee. Tuesday spilt coffee destroyed the water-table salinity report and her error had deleted the original on her computer. Wednesday her boss had words. Thursday she jammed the printer. Friday she worked whilst her office mates went to lunch. Saturday her fiancé called off the engagement. Sunday it rained but she’d forgotten to bring her files home to work on.

Monday, rain unrelenting she ordered the opening of the spillway, creating mayhem with flooding and erosion.
