Story Notes:As with all the other stories in this series, I owe a great debt to the marvelous lavvyan, who wrote the original Male Enhancement fic, and allowed me to write the remix of it.

I also owe a huge debt to my fantastic sister Squeaky. This idea came to me first about a year ago, but if it wasn't for Squeaky's enthusiastic goading and encouragement this would never have been written. She was consistently helpful with medical information, and some of the best ideas that made it into the story are hers. She was also one of the betas. Thank you so much, my Squeaks.

The other beta was annieb1955, and I can't thank her enough for her care, precision and especially patience. Any mistakes that may remain are mine alone.

The title once again comes from the song Sixteen Tons (scroll down for lyrics). And I think this might be the end of that. :)

This is the fourth story in the 'Scruffy AI' series. You can access all the stories by clicking the series link in the above title information. In order from the earliest, they are: Male Enhancement (The Soul and the Company Store Remix), Muscle and Blood and Skin and Bones, and Another Day Older.
