  3. G: So, Charles, hows that little PUTA working out for you? As good as you expected?

    C: That PUTA is the best investment I’ve ever made, George. The PUTA is extremely hardworking and has been nothing but a delight to me.

    G: Charles, I’m so glad to hear that. I’ve been thinking about getting a PUTA myself.

    C: I wouldn’t give up my PUTA for anything, George. It’s extremely useful to me, especially attached to the wall.

    G: I was going to ask you about that particular position, Charles. It seems like such a novel idea–

    C: And yet it works out so well for me to have the PUTA in that position, but another way the PUTA works best is attached to the arm of your chair.

    G: So many options to choose from, Charles. I like the chair idea, but against the wall might suit my lifestyle best.

    C: Yes, nothing could be finer for me than the PUTA against the wall, George. Here’s to the good life.
