“I’ve been invited to a Robot Sex Party. Want to come?” Liam was dead serious.
“How do you mean ‘come’?”
“Don’t be creepy. It’ll be fun.”
It kind of was. A friend of his managed to get some early gen Xenobots and was inviting friends round for drinks and voyeurism. When he dropped the stem cells in there, they were slow starters, but once things got going — wow!
“Look at those little pacmen go! This is weird AF. Feels like they’re missing the fun part of reproducing, y’know?”
Liam laughed back at me. “Hey, if it floats their boat, right?”
The robots were still doing their replication circles an hour later, but the drinks were all drunk, so we headed out to the club. A few more drinks, throw some moves on the floor, and I went home with Sue. We’re still together today, with two kids now. Crazy!
