Let's go with: in command.
Because after winning today, the Canucks now have a commanding three games to one lead in their series. One more win and they're in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Kat and I rested this morning and then did some work in the greenhouse in the afternoon - planting more herb seeds and potting up pepper plants to sell at the market next weekend. And now I'm too sleepy to think of a decent way to wrap this up, so I'll just get on with it, shall I?
The five men sat around the conference table, dressed in suits and looking bored as they flipped through the reports arrayed before them. Five matching coffee cups sat empty on the table, but so far only one attendee showed any sign of needing to go to the bathroom.
Several minutes passed before they stopped pretending to read their paperwork. After another minute they began exchanging silent glances. Finally one man had enough and called the meeting to order.
"All right," he declared in a confident tone. "Now that we're all here... aren't we? Yes, of course. Well then, let's get this meeting underway."
He looked around the table expectantly but no one spoke. In fact, he was quite displeased to note that they were looking at him with that same expression.
"Wait a second," he said slowly. "Just who is in command here?"
The meeting concluded a few moments later without another word being said.
