He was sitting in his best friend, Matt, unkempt living room on one of his ‘drinking’ visits. “Your wife is legit tired of your ass. I’m sure she knows. You need to get a grip,” replied Matt, stirring his cold beer with his finger before taking a sip. “Says the man who has naked robots around the house,”...
