Insomnia

"Dylan."

"..."

"Dylan!"

"What?"

"I can’t sleep."

"What?"

"I can’t sleep: something must be wrong with the upgrade Harper gave me."

"What are you talking about Rommie?"

"I had Harper upgraded my systems to give me a better understanding of what it is to be human, including sleep."

"Rommie, its 3am, and I have to be up in 4-hours."

"So do I."

"Yes, but you don’t need to sleep."

"But I want to."

"Rommie, I respect and support this self-improvement drive your on, but I really need to get some sleep.

"As I said: so do I."

"..."

"Dylan, you’re not taking this seriously."

"I am; I’m just trying to decide how I’ll kill Harper."

"That’s not helping."

"Neither is this latest upgrade..."

"Dylan!"

"I’m sorry: I’m just finding it hard to believe I’m lying in bed at 3am with an insomniac Avatar."

"What makes you think I’m an insomniac?"

"1) You asked Harper to make you more human. 2) You asked him to allow you to sleep like a human. 3) Harper’s a perfectionist. 4) He’s never been too happy about to two of us seeing each other."

"You think he did this deliberately?"

"No: I just think he’s taken your request to the logical extreme and provided you with the full range of human sleeping habits, probably in some random pattern."

"Oh."

"Yes; Oh. Next time you ask Harper for an upgrade, be more specific."

"..."

"Rommie?"

"Zzzzzzzzzzzz"

"Oh for Christ’s sake!"
