I asked her if she even knew what a chiffonier was, and she had no idea. So I decided to look it up. Because that’s what I do. I look things up. I don’t know what I did before the almighty Google.

So if you really wanted the answer you would have to leave the house, go to the library, and try to find information about it in an actual book made out of paper. Pain. In. The. Ass.
