Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
Interrogation Interruption


Shv'uu:Hey, ennesby. You want to take a hypernode call from haban?
Ennesby:Sure. I've been looking for a chess rematch. How's the better half of Doyt doing, anyway? Still trapped in that thick skull?
Shv'uu:I'd say he's in some kind of a bind. Either that, or Doyt got both of them drunk somehow.
Ennesby:Really? Does he sound upset, or incoherent or something?
Shv'uu:No. But he's calling collect, complete with directory assistance charges.
Narrator:Don't ask about the pricing on interstellar operator-assisted calls. You don't want to know.
