8.3 Bite Your Tongue


Wires, lots of wires, a myriad of wires, more wires than would be deemed necessary in an increasingly wireless world.
“Never heard of cable-trunking Nigel?” said Cajones, "it really would neaten things up a bit"
“You know, for a cat you have an unnerving understanding of nuts ‘n’ bolts”
Atom and No.3 collapsed into suppressed laughter.
“He also has a PhD in bullshit,” said Miles, “Obtained from the University of R.Skissing.”
Nigel wondered how Miles could possibly think that antagonising a (notoriously bad-tempered) ten foot cat can be a good idea.
Nigel wondered if Miles had ever considered self-censorship.
