Mrs Bixby and the Colonel’s Coat
The Shopkeeper (S)
Mrs Bixby (B)
Mrs Bixby in the shop:
B: ?leaves that out. And the address.’
She saw the man pause, and she saw the nib of the pen hovering over the dotted line.
B: ?You don’t have to put the name and address, do you?’
The man shrugged and shook his head and the pen-nib moved on down to the next line.
B: ?It’s just that I’d rather not, it’s purely personal.’
S: ?You’d better not lose this ticket, then.’
B: ?I won’t lose it.’
S: ?You realize that anyone who gets hold of it can come in and claim the article?’
B: ?Yes, I know that.’
S: ?Simply on the number.’
B: ?Yes I know.’
S: ?What do you want to me to put for description.’
B: ?No description either, thank you. It’s not necessary. Just put the amount I’m borrowing.’
The pen-nib hesitated again, hovering over the dotted line beside the word ARTICLE.
