Some Spies

Spy 1 has locked Spy 2 in a room, when Spy 2 says that he is in fact Spy 3, and the the man they take to be Spy 3 (who is using the bathroom) is in fact Spy 2. Spy 1 is about to let Spy 3, formerly Spy 2 out of the room, when Spy 4 rushes in and says that they are not who they claim to be, but are instead Spies 5, 6, and 7. This takes Spy 7 by surprise since he has never claimed to be anyone but Spy 7, steadfast and true. He is much relived when the other Spy 7 (who was once Spy 3 but is mostly Spy 2) reveals himself to be Spy 8. With all this resolved they decide to go out and get some lunch. Spy 2 opts not to go, having some dry cleaning to pick up uptown. They bid him farewell and go to Frank's Diner, where they see Spy 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 already there. Spy 6 cannot stand Spy 11 and wants to leave, but Spy 5 has a crush on Spy 9 and the two begin to argue, almost coming to blows. They are broken up by Spy 14, who tells them that Spy 11 is a good guy when you get to know him better and that Spy 5 should tell Spy 9 his feelings. Much emboldened, Spy 5 does, but is rebuffed when it is revealed that Spy 9 is seeing Spy 15. Spy 14 cannot believe this, since Spy 15 is his roommate and friend and was never told. This angers Spy 14 who resolves to doublecross Spy 15 at the earliest opportunity. He doesn't have a chance to do that because Spy 12 doublecrosses them by revealing that he is not Spy 12, he is not even Spy 16, he is Spy 18 having earlier in the evening killed Spy 17. Spy 18 captures them and takes them to the hidden lair where Spy 19 and Spy 20 have prepared an ingenious deathtrap. When they arrive at the lair they find only Spy 21 watching reruns of Matlock. He informs them that Spy 19 and 20 went out to catch a movie. Spy 21 then asks Spy 18 if he brought the ham sandwich he had requested. Spy 18 mutters something about forgetting (though in reality it was Spy 16 who promised to bring the sandwich), Spy 21 goes somewhere to sulk. While imprisoned, Spy 5 and Spy 13 doublecross each other, but end up canceling each other out. Soon Spy 19 and 20 return, but reveal that they are Spy 27 and Spy 36. Spy 64 arrives with coffee.

I feel like I have just vicariously lived the life of a spy.
