Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
. . . get a pretty twink to be my lover."
"Hell, you are a pretty twink for most practical purposes."
"I guess, but the problem is depth. I need technical, philosophical, spiritual and aesthetic depth in a partner, and the only twink I know of with those qualities is me. I need another pair of hands and another warm body. I need a gas giant in my solar system."
"I mean it. I need some heft, some gravitas, someone who's a real partner, not just an ornament or a decoration or a plaything. Not that there's anything wrong with an ornament or a decoration or a plaything, that's just not what I need or want right now. I can make sure it costs you nothing financially. In fact, I can arrange it so that, starting tomorrow, you'll be better off financially than you would have been otherwise. Even if you quit. Whaddaya say."
"Yes, of course, yes."
