Seeing through smoke?

You all know that old party game where one person in a room tells something to another person, then that person tells it to someone else, and so on, and so on, until we get to the last person in the room and it’s interesting to see how garbled the message has become? I’m currently dealing with a situation in real life that’s sort of like that, and it’s not funny at all.

I’m waiting now on a phone call to set a face to face meeting with a person who may have become an unwitting victim of incorrectly relayed messaging. A phone call to me last night tried to involve me in an impossible situation. But I made another phone call this morning to a person with authority over the situation, and he helped me see through the smoke of misunderstanding currently clouding things.

Hopefully the phone call I’m waiting for comes through today. If it doesn’t, I’ll try to track down the person tomorrow. I really need to have a face to face with him. He needs to see through the smoke, too.
