Was there anything worse than children? Nah… he didn’t mind them in small doses, his only real experience being with his two 8 year old nieces. Of course, Theo wasn’t often Kathryn’s first choice of babysitter, so he only experienced the fun uncle duties and absolutely zero responsibility. That was something that never came easy to Theo, even in his lengthy career.

The bearded man paused by a bench to tie his shoelace, before deciding to sit and relax for a few minutes. Or hours. He wasn’t especially worried about being seen by fellow colleagues, but if he had seen his boss then maybe you’d see a little fear in him. His head gently tilted back with his eyes shut, and but a few moments later…


His mouth fell open a little and if one got close enough they would see a drop of dribble droop down his chin.
Despite how much she had wanted to skip work for the day, Rosemary knew she had a long day of player interviews lined up so she had begrudingly made her way to the office that morning - only with enough time to grab some of her material and some thank you items she had prepared for each of the Quidditch pros giving her some of their time. She knew from experience from her long ago marriage, that there was not always a lot of free time to give away. Especially if those pros had family's that expected them to be home and spending their down time with them. Truly, a reasonable request. And one she'd made back before her and Bogdan's divorce when she actually cared to spend time with him.

That truly felt like eons and eons ago now.

She'd just finished up the last of her interview's for the day when she'd decided a break, and a reward, was in order. Spotting St. James park, she made her way that direction and found a food vendor in order to get herself a small popcorn and a bottle of sparking water, before she began to just walk - letting her feet take her wherever.

She'd not gotten far when the sight of a familiar figure caught her attention. Wasn't that one of her colleagues? ... And was he asleep on a bench? With an amused smile, and perhaps a hint of judgement, Rose made her way the man's direction. The closer she got, the more she could see (and hear) the man was definitely asleep - mouth hanging wide open. Deciding to have a bit of fun, she sat down on another bench not too far off and took popcorn pieces - one by one - and aimed them directly towards him. Maybe she'd get lucky and actually make one in.
