by Mike BozartAgent A~O (Al Nino) texts Agent 33 (the author) out of the blue on an overcast February day in Charlotte, requesting 'ideas'. He then calls Agent 33 to learn more about an upcoming novella involving sex robots. Al seems to be high on something and is very intrigued by the whole concept of sex robots. He keeps up the questioning, interspersed with zingers, to figure out Agent 33's 'angle'. When Agent 33 won't reveal the final scene, Al becomes quite upset.
