Lap dance

Alice came in to my office the other day but was frustrated in her goals because POset had already claimed my lap. While Alice was noting this to me — “POset is on your lap” — Polynomial arrived, following Alice’s motion and also became interested in my lap. POset, however, was able to successful defend her perch from all comers for a while, until she became bored or hungry and left. Poly having wandered off by this time, Alice was finally able to claim her rightful place and help me with my typing. She also, considerate child that she is, helped with some memory drills to stave off my encroaching senility, asking me “what’s that?” about everything she could point at.
