“Hey man, it’s Bob, from high school.”

“Holy shit, dude, I haven’t talked to you in years. Did someone die?”

“No. The government called and said you were applying for a job with a ‘sensitive security clearance.’ I am throwing up air quotes around that phrase. They asked all kinds of questions about you. Are you in trouble?”

“No, man, I’m good. What did you tell them? Anything bad?”

“Nah, man, I said you were a solid, reliable dude.”

“Thanks, man. Let’s catch up soon.”

“Are you joining the FBI or something like that?”

“Something like that.”
