By Kay Kenyon.
Read by cunning minx (of Polyamory Weekly).
First appeared in Talebones, Winter 2004.

“It’s my husband. He’ll go. He wants to go.”

The alien looked down the hall as though he’d rather be home nursing a beer than dealing with a disgruntled housewife at 4:00 p.m. on a Friday afternoon.

“Please.” She tried not to sound desperate. “He’s young and healthy. College degree, business administration.” She thought that last might not help. “With a math minor.”

Rated PG. Contains some sexual innuendo, relationship issues, and unpleasant cheese odors.
