I got it, too. I am wondering if the author might actually get paid something if I read it through my KU membership though.

I just read it too. It's well written.

I think that the author is trying to make you think they are babies, but I think it was a TV the entire time (put into an entertainment center, talking about "channels", describing Mario and other games, no longer needing rabbit ears, etc.) that was replaced with a newer version, stored in the basement for a while, then brought back up as retro.

yes for the first 3/4 i thought babies, then when moved to basement, i thought maybe a puppy/dog. then at the end, i was confused. i'm going to reread with TV in mind. Thanks.

Well no wonder it's free — the stories are all short 🙂
