I see you decided to wrap up this story. Looks like they spent the rest of their lives as property of women. Sad for them, great for us.
Thanks for sharing this story with us.
Author's Response: You're welcome. And, thank _you_ for having the patience to stick around for the conclusion! :-)

So, If... Gabe speaks Portuguese, and has become 'the', little 'good-luck' charm, for the Brazilian-waxed-indoor, Volley Ball Team, then... he'll also get to be the official bikini inspector for the all girl swim team too?
God, how could he get so lucky! So what, if he never gets to see any of his co-workers again. I'm sure that he's really 'put out', about it... ;`)
Author's Response: It's more like Gabe will have to _learn_ Portuguese out of necessity. LOL!

And would you believe, in the time since you sent your email (which I have no idea how much by Aust time has passed), this story is still at the very top of most recent.
Btw I once wrote a poem called "Chuck Roberts in the 21st Century", sending up Buck Rogers, except that it starts in the 1940s, and he awakens in 2004 to the massive culture shock of modern society.
Author's Response: Well, as of this moment (seven before three, American EDT), it's been demoted about half a dozen spaces or so. LOL! As for Buck Rogers? You're not too far off. The original Alex Raymond comic strip (and Buster Crabbe film serial adapation) had him going into suspended animation in the 1930's. It's only the first season of the 1970's tele-version that updated him to a space shuttle astronaut!

* "Tea-time Movie" was a skit that spoofed mid-afternoon television programs that showed vintage movies. Only for the TV commercials, advertising local businesses, to get more air time than the movies, themselves. Sort of a precursor to the modern "info-mercial." Anyway, one of the running gags featured Johnny (as "Art Fern") stating:
"How do you get to Non-existent Company, you ask? Well, you take the L.A. Freeway to the Santa Monica Freeway to the Slosson Cut-off. Get out of your car; cut off your slosson; get back in your car; then keep on driving till you come to..."
Here, the audience would join in as Johnny lifted up a folded-over piece of cardboard on the silly road map, and shouted...
"...THE FORK IN THE ROAD!"
Painted-on kitchen fork included.

The Demented Zone? Actually I don't think I ever left it. LOL. And now we're into Wacky Races spin-off humour. That's always delightfully demented.
I trust it wasn't DC Vertigo. LOL.
Author's Response: Nope! It's more like if you (or I) were Scotch-taped to a ruler while some high school girl was shaking it, to laugh at the blurry after-images.

If you can't speak Klingon, you can always read a Carycomic yarn and become fluent in: Keechie-ah-keechie-ah-keechie-KOO!"
Author's Response: Strange you should mention STAR TREK. Vanessa Ferrari was supposed to be doing a pidgin-Italian version of Dr. McCoy's "Woochie-koochie-koochie-koo" (from the episode where Julie Newmar played the pregnant widow of a pro-Federation warlord on the planet Capella)!

Order a BLT with your BST,
And in Australia, pay GST (Goods and Services Tax. A real hot potato ten years ago here).
Author's Response: I thought I was using the proper initials for Beijing Standard Time. If I erred, I humbly apologize.

Your muse is in overdrive this summer. Even when they can make themselves understood the shrunken men are still treated the same way. Wonder what will happen to them next.
Author's Response: " 'Tis in the hands of the Fates." ;-D
