Now, where did I put that manual?

My partner wanted to see the manual for the furnace.

She couldn’t remember when both of us had it installed, & she knew both of us had the date & all the paperwork inside the manual. I couldn’t remember her ever giving me the manual & that is what I told him. She wasn’t glad with our answer. She threw her hands up in the air & told me I didn’t remember much of anything anymore, except for our own work. I couldn’t suppose she got so anxious over our not knowing where the manual to the furnace was when she didn’t even know. I started going through our filing cabinet. I had the manuals for every appliance both of us had purchased since moving into our condo almost twenty years previously. I came up with warranties for appliances, both sizable & small, that both of us no longer owned. I had for the A/C unit, humidifier, dehumidifier, & media UV air purifiers. I was not finding a manual, or any other information, on the furnace. I even went through the junk drawers & where I keep our cookbooks. I came up empty-handed. I yelled downstairs & told him that this loss was on him because I did not have the furnace manual. She told me to forget it, however she sounded a bit odd. I went downstairs to see him thumbing through the manual. I looked over to see the small cupboard that was near the furnace & I laughed. I knew she had stuck it somewhere in the basement. She looked a bit sheepish & admitted she had forgotten she put it there close to the furnace.
