"Sur La Plage"


A Gentleman Of Leisure.


"Hello, sailor."

"Fancy a trip round the bay, miss?"

The Buffybot eyed the rusty submarine moored at the end of the pier.

"The Nautilus?"

The old sea dog politely tipped his battered cap to her.

"'The sun is out, the sky is blue. It's beautiful, and so are you', if I may
quote the Beatles, miss."

"How nice of you to say so - you're right on both counts of course," said
the Buffybot confidently. "My name is Bibi." She put out her hand for him to
shake. Instead, he bowed and gently kissed it.

"Enchante, mademoiselle. Nomine meum Nemo est."
