"I'll have to sweet-talk Seth into doing a bit more furniture-shifting for us," says Salome.
"Why? Have they actually let you let go of some of the crap here?" I ask.
"No, but we've agreed to take the sofa from Catty. It's going to go into the reference library."
"It's at Carbootsale. I was there this morning."
"What's it doing there?"
"Getting in the way."
"No, I mean why's it there? Doreen sorted it out with T.Aldous."
"He wanted it to go to Roadkill."
"So why's it at Carbootsale?"
"Because Julia's bought a new one for Roadkill. So she's sent it to Carbootsale before T.Aldous sent it to Roadkill."
"So why didn't she send it here like we'd arranged?"
"Perhaps because she didn't know about it. Doreen's not exactly been communicative of her plans to those of us outside Helminthdale Lending Library. I'm waiting to be told that the People's Network clients are being moved over to part of the library without electricity or network connections."
"But they're going in the young adults area."
