Neither Short, Nor Stout

1Error 418.

"What is it? What's going on?"

"The computer encountered an error."

"What kind of error?"

"No idea. I've never seen this code before."

I growl, pluck the electrodes from my skin, and scramble from the hospital bed. "What the hell is error 418?"

"I don't know."

"Then look it up! What am I paying you idiots for?"

One of the techs shucked her sterilized gloves, reached under her lab coat, and pulled out her smartphone. "Uh-oh. Umm, boss..."

"What?"

"Something is very wrong."

"Obviously. Now tell me something I don't know."

"It says you're a teapot."
