Every month we honor an 826CHI volunteer who has gone above the beyond and beyond the above in his or her dedication to our organization. After we bestow the title of Spy of the Month upon these volunteers, we have found that these agents, awash in adulation and admiration, become far less guarded and are willing to reveal all manner of secrets about who they really are. As always, these revelatory conversations are done in secret with our recorder set for 8 minutes and 26 seconds, no more, no less. We end the conversation midbreath if we must. Or the spies surreptitiously send their answers through the electronic mail system with no real adherence to a time limit.
