The narrator is an elderly lawyer who helps his clients with mortgages, titles and bonds. The lawyer’s office has two employees Nippers and Turkey. Turkey is a drunk and Nippers has indigestion. The office is able to function because Nippers's indigestion is at a time when Turkey is sober and Turkey is hung over when Nippers is feeling better.
