“Far out….that’s messy huh?”
The woman sat shaking her head at the news she was hearing.
“Oh this is just crazy….”she began
“So….let me get this correct….the mystery man behind the Alienware laptop is a girl……a woman? But it’s not the same person as the one behind the embossed gift boxes? Is that correct?”
The woman with laptop nodded.
“Yes. That’s correct.”
The friend ran her fingers through her hair, absentmindedly played with the pimple on the side of her cheek, then twirled the highball tumbler before picking up the glass and taking a sip.
“And the paper?” she asked.
“The scrappy bit of paper?” she repeated.
“Why did she give you that? What’s that all about?”
The woman with the laptop handed it over for her friend to read.
“Go on…..Read it out loud…I want to roll it around in my head one more time…
The friend opened the paper, scanning it quickly then reading out loud.
“Generalist equals messiness but messiness won’t always equal randomness. Find the general and the messiness will no longer be randomness.”
The woman furrowed her brow.
“What on earth is that meant to mean?”
The woman with laptop shrugged.
“I have no idea.”
