TEXT PANEL:
He can hear sighs and conversations of people collecting in the hall waiting for elevators, heading out of the building, the telephone rings.
“Good, I hoped that you were still here.”
“Yeah, well I thought that it might be you.”
“Where do you want to meet?”
“Well, they are still under construction on the 15th floor and the union guys are out of there by now and I think they have finished a few of the offices with good views. Wait a second… I don’t hear the muffled power tools. Want to go there?”
“Sure, I have not been down there as yet.”
” What about the rooftop conference room? Was there anything scheduled there today?”
“I don’t think so, but we will have to take the stairs to get up there…the west staircase is always an option a little later if you still have work to do.”
“Naw, I’m almost finished.”
“What time do you have?”
“8:20.”
“I’ll meet you in the hall at a quarter to.”
“Okay.”
