The Playful Professional

I'm working. Honestly.

I was just reviewing a section of a report I'm currently writing, and found this accidentally alliterative gem in my heading (did you know that there is no synonym for 'gem' that starts with 'a' ? Is it scarier that I actually checked, or that I actually wrote that down to be published? *sigh*) -

"Rebuttal of Reasons for Refusal as Recommended by Officers"

What a pity that I didn't call the officers "Representatives". Lost opportunity.

It's a good job I remembered the computer's Thesaurus because the only alternative I could think of starting with 'r' was neither nice, nor politically correct (although it would have expressed my current frustration precisely).

Chances that the heading is NOT going to be severely reworked?

... Approximately None, and I'd better get back to it.

Har har har! "Neither nice, nor politically correct."

I thought "Argyle" would have been synonym-ish with "gem".

But I'm too lazy to look it up.

Hooray for alliteration! Full of frivolous fun.
