Why are they talking to each other?

Lots of narration lately. Wait. If it is the crack of dawn for Mark, it has to be about 3 AM for Rob. But if it is dawn for Rob (the dawn patrol, yes?) it has to be at least 8 AM for Mark. That should be a bit late for a woodsman like Mark to still be sleeping.

Anyway, while Rob talks on his humanoid telephone, Mark obligingly continues to listen. Why?

Rob appears to believe if hardcase Diana Daggers could get suckered into the NFT scam, so can Mark. Scamming seems to be Cricket Bro’s go-to technique.
