She had a conflict of interest and asked to be excused.
I can’t tell you why because then you’d have to take me out and shoot me.
That’s the trouble with conflicts of interest – you usually can’t discuss them!
As a person who spent eight years in an ivory tower and couldn’t contact anyone (officer of the court), I absolutely understand.
So she’s fine and doing well and, once everything shifts, she’ll be back. She sends her love.
Thanks, Earthkeeper! I didn’t spill any beans, did I? You ain’t gonna shoot me, are you? Phew!
