Chetspeak on Sunday
Vannah Boutette crossed her legs, uncrossed them, crossed them again. Bernie’s gaze went to the ceiling, the floor, back to her legs. We were in the office, just down the hall from the kitchen, Bernie at the desk, Vannah on the couch, me on the rug, a comfortable, nubbly rug with a circus elephant pattern. I was fond of the pattern, had once gotten to know a circus elephant named Peanut quite well, but no time for that now.
“You work out of your home?” Vannah said.
“Any problem with that?” Bernie said.
“Why would I have problem with that? I work out of my place, too.”
“Yeah? What line of, uh … “
“Let’s call it importing,” Vannah said.
“What kind of goods?”
“Good goods, bad goods, everything in between.”

And a reminder: Snowhook auction ends at 1:00 PM Alaska time today. Go Snowhook!
