The Uninvited Spook
While 75-year-old George is late for his own surprise birthday party, and his wife Gracie is promising to kill him if he doesn't show up soon, three veteran spymasters step out on the balcony to discuss his future with the Agency. The uninvited spook across the street listens in and disagrees with every word.

"While the story was pretty predictable - no mystery to who 'spook' was - there was a cute twist with wife that was funny." - Christine Staeven
