“Oh wow Jo, those are gorgeous! Did you get them in the Secret Santa?”
Jo Micheals, senior nurse in Newbolton Accident & Emergency, looked down at the earrings in the little box on the desk in front of her and nodded. She hadn't got over her surprise at receiving them herself.
“Oh, now why didn't I get something like those? I got kitty cat socks!” Emmie, a junior nurses on the department shoved the socks under Jo’s nose. Cartoon cats picked out in wool waggled merrily before her eyes.
“Emmie, you like cats.” Jo pointed out, grinning up at the younger woman. “You've got a cat bag, cat umbrella, cat scarf… hell, I wouldn't be surprised if you've got cat panties!”
The junior nurse narrowed her eyes in mock suspicion, “Hey, how'd you know? You been sneaking into my apartment and checking out my underwear drawer or something?” she giggled, snatching the cat socks back, as though Jo would steal them given half the chance. That Emmie loved cats, and by extension anything that had a cat on, was well known in the department. Jo knew for a fact Adrian, one of the porters, went out of his way to find cat things to leave around for her. No doubt the person responsible for the socks.
