Penelope: Tell me about the new town you’re moving to.
Outis: It’s called Nusquam and it’s smack dab in the middle of the country.
Penelope: Where is it exactly?
Outis: I can’t give you the coordinates, if that’s what you’re after.
Penelope: Of course not. I’m just trying to pinpoint where it is. Is it near Wichita, Kansas?
Outis: It’s nowhere near Wichita. It’s in the heart of a remote part of the country.
Penelope: Where is it relative to this town?
Outis: I can’t give you any reference points or tell you the distance. I’ll just say it’s on the outskirts of a medium-sized town and borders Nebraska.
Penelope: Why are you being so cryptic?
Outis: I’ll tell you that when you spill the beans on why you’re asking.
Penelope: I thought I’d come for an extended stay to help you get settled.
Outis: You’ve just answered your own question.
