“What are you doing, Bilta? It’s very uncomfortable talking behind my back with digital.Bilfty2.1, yo–don’t tell me but consider your actions.”

“We were planning a surprise hotdog grill party for your birthday, boss”, Bilta replies as he shuffles on the bench by the ocean.

“Don’t tell me–now, the surprise is ruined!”

“I bought a sweet apron for it”, digital.Bilfty2.1 exclaims as he shrugs, “I can’t return it and it’s no fun if it’s not a surprise.”

“I am trying to not eat hotdogs anymore, guys, velociraptors”, I explain as I roll my eyes, “they are very high in sodium–I have been switching to digital.hamburgers so maybe we could do that instead.  I, actually, appreciate the thought but would prefer if you put your effort in other areas–like, killing the mission later today to go back and milk cows at the dairy farm.  I got an email that you two did a great job and have been asked to return tomorrow in the morning to pick up another shift.”

“So why do we have all this sudden work milking cows?”, Bilta replies as he sighs, “it’s a strange job and it was stranger that there was no one else in the dairy barn.”

“They’re having a strike there and they need some help until the contract is renewed–you can’t just have cows standing around with full utters.  You two need to step up and pick up the need until the dispute is resolved.  It’s both an utter predicament and a great way to get some hands on experience, yo.”

“I would prefer to put my hands on something besides cow utters”, digital.Bilfty2.1 replies as he grabs a ham sandwich out of his bookbag.

“Didn’t you have those rubber gloves that are always a hassle to put on and always rip a little near the pointer finger so they don’t actually offer any protection to your hand?”

“They didn’t give us gloves–we had to use our bare hands to milk the cows.  It’s was an utter disaster–my claws accidently scraped one utter.  I don’t think that is the right job for us–maybe, you can consider our unique talents and find us better work like some sweet DJ spinning and a break dance party?  I would prefer to be spinning like a top on the floor then in that barn with the cows.  I don’t think that it’s the place for us–maybe, we should drop this project and find some better work?”

“It’s not a bad idea, yo”, I reply as I take a sip of soda, “we should put out some flyers and canvas the neighborhood to see if anyone needs you and digital.Bilfty2.1’s skills.  They have parties in House #98–maybe, we can talk to them about giving you two a chance?”

“I don’t like those people–they eat a lot of digital.lettuce.  I find that strange.  I don’t think that I want to be involved in any of their parties–maybe, we can just get through the cow project and go surfing later.  The water feels better after a hard day of work.”

“Rewards are more valuable after suffering and sacrifice, yo.”

“What’s that mean, boss?”

“Save the dessert for after the meal.”
