Viewing the local antiquities

Annie dresses like the small business owner she is 
in a cream linen suit with a lace handkerchief tucked between her breasts. Bending down to slip on her black pumps she asks:

"Do you mind if I go down with you?"

The agency hadn't managed to get a phone into the new apartment.

"Of course not."

As I walk down the street, she heads off to a phonebooth to get her next appointment.

I called up the agency a year or so later; the cheerful old bawd with the gravel voice answers.

"She's retired."

"Is she happy?"

"Very happy."
