Ginger: Good morning, this is Ginger.
Ruby: Did you stop by my place this morning?
Ruby: Did you…borrow…something?
Ginger: I did.
Ruby: So, you have my toaster oven.
Ginger: I do. I left a note…
Ruby: Which is why I called you. Your note was…we’ll go with ‘cryptic.’
Ginger: In what manner?
Ruby: I’m not sure what you chose to write it with…
Ginger: I only had crayons in my purse.
Ruby: And you used it on a napkin…
Ginger: I must have left my notepad at home today.
Ruby: And so it sort of says “Have to, office out, G.”
Ginger: It does not.
Ruby: I am reading it right now.
Ruby: I’m reading the note right now.
Ginger: Why aren’t you at work?
Ruby: Fly and I have an appointment with a realtor today, so I took today off.
Ginger: That sounds like a terrible waste of a day off.
Ginger: Well, first of all, you’re wasting the realtor’s time. You’re not moving.
Ruby: …ah. Do you still have a panic attack when I suggest a significant change in your routine is imminent?
Ruby: …no reason. Can we discuss that topic at a later date?
Ginger: Why would we need to?
Ruby: …no reason. Anyway, could you explain the note regarding my toaster oven?
Ginger: It says “Have T. O. Office out. G.”
Ruby: That doesn’t really help.
Ginger: Well, it’s a crayon on napkin. It’s not easy to compose full essays on the human nature with those as your tools.
Ruby: I just wanted to know what’s going on with my toaster oven. Right now, I care very little about essays on the human nature.
Ginger: I’m just saying.
Ruby: I’m still waiting.
Ginger: Everyone in the office is out on vacation this week. It’s pretty much me and a handful of people in other departments that I rarely see.
Ginger: So, in one cube, I set up the coffee machine. To save money.
Ginger: In another cube, I set up your toaster oven. My manager has a mini fridge in his office and I have a key to his office. So, now, I can have hot tasty toaster oven treats with my coffee.
Ruby: What am I supposed to do without my toaster oven this week?
Ginger: …um…well, you’re not at work today anyway. You can just stop in here today and…you’re going to demand I return the toaster oven after today, aren’t you?
Ruby: I think it’s amusing that you think I’ll let you keep it for the full day today.
Ginger: …if you let me keep it here this week, I’ll put off asking you again about why you’re wasting a realtor’s time today since you’re not moving.
Ruby: Three days of the week.
Ruby: Three and I’ll tell Fly I lent it to you with full knowledge of your plan.
