Lt. Paris,

I've decided to let you attend the festivities tonight. You can thank Commander Chakotay; he told me it wouldn't be a party without you.

See you at eight.

I thought I was going to get out of it, but the Captain just practically ordered me to come to the party. Harry, if you really are my friend, you won't let me anywhere near the egg-nog. Promise?

Jenny,

This is serious, now. No spiking Tom's drink. No daring him to streak through the mess hall. No dirty dancing. No matter how tempting it may seem.

Okay Harry, I'll be good. Considering that piece of information just won me a week's replicator rations on the betting pool, I can afford to be generous. See you tonight.

Neelix, don't you think you should be keeping an eye on Jenny Delaney? I believe that's the Captain's second helping of egg-nog. Maybe you could let Megan take over at the punchbowl for awhile?

SUBJECT: Assignment

Tom,

As you're on your best behaviour this evening, perhaps you could keep an eye on the Captain? Try reminding her of the effects of Neelix's egg-nog on the human equilibrium. I'm sure your insights will be very informative, from a medical perspective, of course.

Chakotay's just ordered me to keep the Captain away from the egg-nog. Could you hide it or something? And tell Jenny that if she doesn't stop refilling the Captain's glass I'll spank her.

Did I, or did I not, just see the Captain come out of the kitchen with a new bottle of egg-nog? Aren't you supposed to be keeping an eye on her?

And don't mention Jenny Delaney and spanking in the same sentence, it's more than a gentleman's heart can stand. :)

Good idea, Tom. I'll make her excuses. Call the Doctor if you need assistance. And make sure there's a detoxifying hypospray available for when she wakes up.

And by the way, you've shown remarkable restraint this evening. Congratulations, and thanks for being such a good sport this past week. Hope your duties haven't put too much of a dampener on your night.
