Hey, I hear we traded 4 for 12 with the Russians. Hm..

TechnoBabe said...

Never of a spy going back.

Just goes to show, they can't be all bad!

Mother means so much in any language.

Kass said...

All that spy training
tossed aside for maternal
sensibilities.

Tabor said...

One wonders what really will happen to him now that he has switched...

The power we mothers have!

Ah, but your 4 were worth far more than their 10. Knowledge is what it's all about. You get intelligence officers and a scientist
against 10 who had never done anything - and probably never would have.

TechnoBabe
But he missed his mum, for heaven's sake!

Derrick
They're not - it's just the other side's wots bad, innit?

Gwei
Probably untranslatable, though. (Still can 't leave comments on yours - apparently it's the shockwave.

Kass
Did the paternal
sensibilities lead them
to accept him back?

Tabor
Exactly!

Cait
Couldn't you begin to use them more on the world stage?
