Roop looked down on her people, and said “Ye verily, you are loyal workers. You deserve a reward.” And so the bonus was born, and hope was born in the tired breasts of the loya workers.
And then TXU dragged us into the valley of More Shadows as the Day Get’s Later and baked us with inderect sunlight. TXU said, “Thou shalt pay out the nose, or thall shalt not have light until the stars fall from the sky and the moon has turned red.”
And so we hemmed and hawed and sweated. And paid the bill. TXU said “Let there be light!” and there was, and we saw that it was Good…despite the remembered shame of having to bend over and grab our ankles.
Thanks to everyone for their support
