“Hey, you’re up early.”
I made a valiant effort to sound cheerful. “Heck, I’ve already had breakfast. Jan made it.”
“Ah, Jan’s there. That explains why you were out and about and not answering your phone. How’s Jan?”
I liked the way this was going. No reason for Jenks to wonder if we’d been up to no good, because if Jan was with me it was a given, and he usually just didn’t want to know details unless he had to post bail.
