Photo Prompt.

"Doctor!"

"Hmm?"

"Do you know what day it is?"

"Yes!"

"You do?"

"No. Wait a minute. It's…March 9th."

"Right, but more specific."

"Oh, you want the year? I…I'm working on what year."

"No, no. It's a holiday."

"Is it? No, it isn't."

"Yes it is, I read it on the newspapers out there. It's Employee Appreciation Day."

"Oh. That's…fairly ridiculous, but I suppose if you like…"

"So I've got this."

"A cake."

"Yep. Happy Employee Appreciation Day, oh-employee-of-mine."

"This is for me?"

"Yep."

"Why?"

"Because I felt like it."

"You felt like…"

"Cake!"

"Oh."

"Oh? You don't like it?"

"I don't understand it."

"Right, here's how it works. You take the cake---"

"Majenta."

"—you cut the cake---"

"Majenta."

"—and then you put the cake into your skinny-boy-mouth."

"Skinny?!"

"Understand now?"

"I don't understand why you made me a cake."

"Puh-lease, Scrummy. I bought you this cake."

"You bought me a cake."

"A sort of employee appreciation…thing."

"A cake that says I'm pretty."

"Too much?"

"A cake that says I'm pretty."

"You're not going to try employer harassment on me, are you?"

"A cake that says I'm pretty."

"At least you're pretty."

"At least? That's very nearly double-sided, Majenta."

"You don't want me to call you pretty?"

"It's not quite a compliment, is it? At least I'm pretty."

"Well, you're certainly not a great driver."

"Well."

"Or particularly daring."

"Oi!"

"Or relatively clever..."

"So this is an insulting cake."

"You wouldn't eat it if it was complimentary. You'd think I'd poisoned it or something."

"…well...."

"You have no faith. And no meat on your bones, so plenty of frosting on this. Happy Employee Appreciation Day, Doctor."

"Thanks, Majenta. That's very nearly kind of you."

"Nuh-uh. You get to eat it when you've fixed the console."

"What?"

"Then you can take me to October 16th."

"Which is---let me guess. Boss's Appreciation Day?"

"Yep! And there's this wonderful new diamond necklace I've been lusting after for a while…"
