Thinking

That night, he was still pondering his wife's letter. She had wished him happiness with his true love, but that really couldn't happen, could it?

On one hand, Tony wasn't in the least interested in him; Control doubted he ever would be. On the other hand, he was Tony's boss. He would not want to be accused of favouritism; he knew how rumours got around the canteen. On the other hand...

Control suddenly realized he'd certainly not counted very carefully and now had three hands. He immediately smiled remembering how clever Tony had been to point that out to him.

LOL! I love your megaphone idea...But you know Control is still just turning a deaf ear. *sigh* He worries too much, you know.

Thanks, love! :)

Aw, Control. You know, I begin to suspect that his wife actually knew about this before he did. How is Tony going to show his feelings? They're both so formal and spell-it-out, it seems like only an outright plain language declaration would get the message across.

These two are going to have to have heads knocked together, I think! I have a few thoughts on how it'll all play out; we'll see which one I actully go with! :D

Wait, wait! He can't go after Tony because they work together, so... he has to fire him.

Well, let's just say it's not his idea but it will work out nicely for them. :)

Yay! "You've got three hands, Control!" is a favorite line of mine, and I'm stoked to see it referenced here!

Love these drabbles, hon. Do you think that Mrs. Control knew?

LOL! Mine, too, and I wasn't quite sure how to work it in. Yay! that I found a way! :D

Well, she knew Control was thinking about someone. Maybe not Tony, but someone else.

Oh that's so cute! Mrs Control totally knew that her husband is desperately in love with Tony (takes on to know one right enough!)! It's lovely that she wants him to be lovely! Don't worry Control - he loves you too, just keep your eyes open :D :D :D *hugs Control*

She may not have known about Tony himself, but she's a smart cookie and knows there's someone else, just like there's someone else for her.

Sooner or later, our boys will find each other; not to worry! :D

Eeee, Control is so adorable, and his thinking that Tony couldn't possibly be interested is so sweet and sad. And three hands, yay!

Three hands is one of my favorite lines ever. Especially that it gets used in a couple of different Fry/Laurie skits. :)
