Looking up just in time as his boss walked in, carrying a cup of coffee Jake wished he had thought of getting one too before beginning the day's work. "Good morning Milo,". He greeted with a smile.

Taking up memo from Victoria about team mascots he asked as he gestured with the parchment. "Milo, how are mascot auditions run? Are there any mascot qualifications and rules?" Jake felt clueless and was not afraid to admit it if asked. The game of Gobstones was still very much a new game to him. He was still learning the inns and outs with it and had bought his own gobstones ball set to practice and learn just this past weekend.
He started towards his own desk to see if any of his expected mail had gotten there yet, not really thinking to engage in small talk, when Jake's question caused Milo to pause in his gait. "Mascot auditions? Ah, sure... give me a sec." He sipped his coffee, then kept walking to grab his chair. He didn't mind clarifying things with the employees, but it wasn't a quick yes or no answer, so he figured he could get comfortable while they discussed things.

Taking a larger swig of his beverage, he set the cup down on his desk, then looked through some of his papers before grabbing a stack and pushing his wheeled chair over to Jake's desk. In all honesty, he thought having mascots for Gobstones had been a ridiculous addition to the game a couple years ago, but it hadn't really been his place to argue that point. Maybe now that he was in this position, he might be able to have more of an impact on how the game was handled.

"Alright, let's look to see which teams have upcoming auditions," he said as he took a seat near the other man's desk and started looking through his paperwork. "There are specific regulations, if you haven't had a chance to look over that information. And they need to know specific times to come out during the matches to get the audience enthused without disturbing the players." It was a very strategic game, after all. And many of the players appreciated quieter concentration.
