Monday morning shows up much too soon, but Tobias wanted water and electricity. Badly. He just had to survive long enough to become a Lobbyist. Maybe then he can convince some construction companies to travel way out here.
The first day came to an end. He hailed Scott Hopson, but they did not get along too well.
Tobias: I would much rather go on a date with Olive.
I thought you wanted to go on a date?
Tobias: Woohoo first.
Why must you be in the dark, in some random spot on the side of the house?
Tobias: I just followed her this way. It’s not my fault.
Olive: I had a wonderful time. Call me tomorrow.
Studying is not Tobias’ strong suit. He gets a little bit done towards learning physiology before heading to bed for the day.
He got up a few hours later and completed the book and then went on to max the skill.
Doreen calls. I could not let them live in this town without phones. We’ll just pretend that they are cellphones. Doreen ends up being friend #2. He now wants to be her best friend.
Tobias ate a very late lunch and decided to paint. His alien painting would literally sell for $0.
The first use of the stove was a success. Whew!
He invited Doreen over and they played darts.
Then had a pillow fight. She left soon after, but they never did make it to best friend status.
Tobias had to pee so bad, he woke up at 4 a.m. After his bath, he decided that he needed to learn Lifelong Happiness for some reason.
Frank Hopson was passing by just as Tobias ran off for his second day of work. Tobias is really hoping for a promotion today.
I was bored, so we watched Olive stop by and read the paper before she trotted off again.
Oops. New Rule: If you get fired, you cannot hire back on until the next rotation.
Tobias: I told you that I was too new an employee to answer those questions.
I’m so sorry. I’ll listen to you next time. I promise.
Tobias: Wednesdays suck.
If you keep doing this same painting, I am going to make that become a real goal for you.
Tobias: What? Painting aliens?
No, getting abducted.
This version sold for a whopping $1.
Tobias invited Doreen back over, but made his thoughts on her clear. Too bad he won’t wish that date want away. Doreen turned around five minutes later and left due to the time anyway. Tobias went off to make a Pop Tart.
Tobias: It’s burnt.
You look like you’re about to cry.
Tobias: It’s burnt. I am sad.
Well, next time, don’t put something in the oven and go to bed. I am just glad you listened when I told you to wake up. Just go eat it and go back to bed. Only a couple of more hours and you will be free from me for a while.
Tobias: You’re leaving me? YAY!
