Booby knocked on Jack’s door and Jack waved for him to come in. Jack was talking to someone on the phone while cradling a Diet Coke in one hand. A few seconds after Bobby entered his office Jack hung up the phone and motioned for Bobby to take a seat.
Bobby sat facing Jack’s long oak wood desk in a maroon colored leather chair with a slight tear in it.
“So, what’s up Bobby? You got the report on last night’s game?” asked Jack taking a bite from a pizza slice. “Oh, man, where’s my manners? Help yourself to a slice of pizza, Bobby.
“Not right now, Jack but thanks for the offer. Now to answer your first question, I’ve got something much better than a report on a junior hockey game. I’ve started gathering material for a breakthrough series of articles,” answered Bobby.
“What are you talking about? I’m already feeling that I might be sorry I asked,” said the editor cleaning his hands with a white napkin.
“We’re talking about cutting edge science, Jack. I’ve recently interviewed a few people who claimed to have seen Ogopogo. I’ve even got a couple of pictures that I got verified by a photographic expert.”
“Ogopogo? What does that have to do with The Kelowna Katfish. Are they looking for a new logo?” asked Jack chuckling as he threw his crumpled up napkin into a nearby green garbage can.
Booby sat up and leaned forward towards his editor’s desk. “I’m very serious about this one. It could be a great scoop for The Kelowna Sun.”
