Gus is 101 now, and still going strong. But he can’t last too much longer, so I sent Kay out to find the next contestant. I find you can reliably encounter old people at the park in the center of town at night. I sent Kay down there with her laptop, so that she could work on her latest book (a mystery I titled A Study in Plumbob) while waiting for her next victim to wander past.
After hitting on and passing over a series of old people (men and women both) who turned out not to be single, she finally found a single elderly man. Conveniently enough, Rene Velez is also Flirty.
“I’m Flirty!” “I’m Flirty, too!” “This town needs more hot tubs, don’t you think?”
Now that she has made that contact, it’s just a matter of maintaining her relationship while waiting for Gus to die. I have her phone him every day.
“I’m a writer. That’s right, with a quill pen and everything!” (Liar!)
