Good morning Eggheads…

I was in the process of making a substantial withdrawal at a bank, or as the Feds prefer to call it, “Robbery in Progress.” My situation warranted doing so because, as I saw it, the bank had lots of money and I didn’t. Only my plan didn’t call for actually ‘stealing’ the money, just taking it for a short trip to the parking lot where I would wait for the cops to capture me. Yep! I had a plan and fully intended to make it pay off.

My actions were necessitated because I was tired of paying rent and insurance and taxes and co-pays and utilities and everything in between. It was better to just let the Feds take over and be responsible for me, Lock, Stock & Barrel. I was even going to plead guilty when asked, and say “no” should they ask if I needed an attorney. No use costing the bank or the system any unnecessary expense. Heck, I even thought about bringing my own toothbrush to save them money but changed my mind and decided on bringing nothing to the table but myself.

So within minutes I was in the back of a police car waiting for the next steps to take place. They sure were taking their time taking me ‘downtown.’ “Come on – let’s go!” but I was wasting my breath. “Hey! Let’s Go!!! I want to get this over with!!! And I need to use the bathroom!!!”

Ooops! The one thing I forgot to do before being captured. And they didn’t seem to be in any kind of hurry to do anything with me.

All of a sudden my sensors picked up a growing pressure in my internal plumbing system and alerted me to take the necessary steps to reduce the pressure. I instantly came out of dreamstate and back in real time. Then I initiated the emergency sequence, starting with going vertical and placing my go-forwards onto the artificial surface and pointed in a northerly direction toward the facility maintenance department. I was having a balance problem as I raced through the terrain but then realized I was no longer wearing handcuffs. Good thing because I would have no way of grabbing the pressure release lever once I reached the porcelain furniture room and selected one which was appropriate to the mission in hand.

With practiced precision I took care of the emergency and observed the follow-up protocol before exiting and proceeding to the communications center to check on the Forum and file my report.

It appears there is an assembly waiting for my report before they make way to their own charging stations. There are also 21 Members and 211 Guests in various stages of doing nothing. But since they are around and capable of assuming command I shall take my leave and return to the recharging station.

Say goodnight Leroy.
