Jim: The Bodyguard

Jenkins, his face an expressionless mask behind dark glasses, leaned over and said, “We have to go, sir.”

“Damn!” I grunted, pushing away from my half-eaten meal. I trusted my bodyguard’s remarkable talent for sensing trouble so I tossed a Franklin onto the table and fell in behind him.

Jenkins suddenly sidestepped. He commanded, “Get down!” just as the first gunshot boomed in the crowded restaurant. Two more shots sounded before Jenkins could draw his pistol and drop the assassin.

Jenkins fell. “I’m shot, sir.”

While my bodyguard’s lubricant pooled under his motionless body, I called the customer service hotline.

I hope that customer service line's on hold music is tolerable.

I really hope the company making cybernetic bodyguards with advanced threat detection routines would do better than "The Girl from Ipanema". I mean, where's the Tom Jones muzak?

LOL, Kieran. Do you think "What's New, Pussycat" would be appropriate hold music for this company?
