Nameless Agent came into my office to ask me if I knew the whereabouts of some office furniture today.
"Do you know what happened to those big white overstuffed chairs?"
I reminded Nameless that I had started working here after the move from the Division Street office.
"So you haven't seen them? It's a couch and two chairs or a loveseat or something. And they are white overstuffed chairs, really soft and comfortable." Nope, I said, I had never seen them, but they could ask Doug when he got off the phone. So in a few minutes, Doug hung up.
"Doug," bleated Nameless, "Do you know what happened to those big white overstuffed chairs?"
"What big white overstuffed chairs?" Doug inquired.
"From the Division office, you know the ones from the waiting room area? Big and white and soft?"
"Noooo..." said Doug thoughtfully. "I can't picture them. Can you describe them?"
"Well, they're white."
