Give it Time
As Champ67 selected which of the cows in his herd would be transferred to his T-Rex pen, he heard a buzz. It took him a moment to realize it was the bell to his virtual door. Who the hell still uses doors? he wondered. In a blink he was at his door, which open to reveal the avatars of two, plain women. “Who are you?” Champ67 asked.
The one on the left smiled and replied, “I am Gamma 015282, and this is Beta 005879. We are here to ask if you’ve ever considered joining the Humbold Hive Mind?”
Before the two could say anything else, Champ67 added, “And no thanks.” He then shut the door on them.
