Ted was a Temp. Temp being short for ‘temporary’, and Ted was short for Edward. Ted was also short if and when compared to people taller than himself – five feet tall. Ted only had two feet both of which were perfectly in proportion to the rest of his body – being neither too small, nor too large.
Ted was working in Woking in the office of a multi-notional think tank. Or, at least, he thought he was.
He was tempted to leave there; but, he was not a tall self-confident.
