I've been doing some training at work this week to get our drivers ready to go when the fall semester starts. Part of the training is a video of the CEO explaining and emphasizing a safety program that he developed. Moir Lockhead was knighted for his efforts in transportation at the 2008 Birthday Honours. I've been using this fact to stress to my trainees how truly important the safety program is.
I know I'm American and we don't have knights in this country, but I'm also a fantasy author (not published yet) who understands a knight's code of honor. It's awesome to have a knight for a boss. I feel like a page or squire. I do what the boss says. I help him get his goals met. I wear a bright yellow safety breastplate and wield a powerful reporting weapon called a handbook. Sir Lockhead values what I do with my weapon and takes measures to see that my concerns are dealt with. And I have a horse. That seats more than forty people. How cool is that?
My wife will appreciate this little tidbit I got off Wikipedia: Sir Lockhead breeds her favorite animal, the hairy highland coo.
