Junior Earplug Adventures: Those Magnificent Earplugs (Part 8)

Naturally Nigel wanted to know all about Magnuss and the Museum of Future Technology. Of course there was far too much to tell about both, so Magnuss decided to talk about his early days of discovery  in the museum. Like when he discovered air sickness after flying a space buggy for the first time…


And what it’s like when an earplug gets sucked into the olfactory array of a RoboSecGua – or Robot Security Guard for short…


And his amazement when he found that not all life-forms are natural – like the biological androids that had been designed as disposable warriors, but who preferred more esoteric interests – such as art, corn flakes, and falling in love…


Finally he told Nigel about the first time that he flew with a rocket pack upon his back, and how excited he’d been, but had managed to avoid soiling his pants…


…before confessing that he’d been ever so nervous about visiting the cable end world, and had been slightly less successful in the pants department…


Well this must have been what Nigel had most wanted to hear:

“I can’t tell you how pleased I am to hear that.” Nigel spoke with a smile in his voice. “I was afraid that you might be an overbearing oaf, or a loud mouthed turd.”

Then he cancelled the cyan alert at the nul-space generator plant…


…and told the cable ends who were listening at the door…


…that everything was perfect and that he was about to conduct negotiations with Magnuss on a trade deal that would allow the K T Woo to enter the atmosphere without fear of destruction, where it could replenish its fuel supply.

“That’s good.” Many of them were heard to say. “I couldn’t hang around here much longer anyway: I’m dying for a pee.”
