“B.L.Z. Bub, president of Electrical Hell, wants to talk to me,” he said.
“I’m not sure you’d want to work at something called Electrical Hell,” I said. “Electrical Heaven – that might be a better fit.”

“This might be my last chance,” he finally said. “I’m going to have to talk to him.”
“I love you,” I said quietly.
