"We've expanded the business to include telepersonal communications," he said, "and now we're moving onto the Internet. You can help us do that."

"That's right," he continued, cheerily. Even as I raised my hand to feign a cough, the images of numbers flashed across my mind: 1-900.

I went to work at a sex shop.
