Thank you!

In honor of the snowstorm I drove through to get to work, I have a short piece:


On BLIZZARD DAYS, FCD is staffed by ANYBODY WHO CAN MAKE IT THROUGH SEVERAL FEET OF SNOW.

The children are all at the window, looking at the furious whiteout beyond.
BABY GUSS: So is this where we all get buried alive and die? Because I voted for coloring books today. Not dying.
BABY TANNO VIK, swaggering out of the kitchen with a fistful of stolen plastic drinking straws: Not to worry, I have a foolproof solution for breathing while we're buried. We just use these. Twenty credits a pop, guys, I have enough for all.
BABY CORSO: Tanno, you just stole those.
BABY TANNO VIK: Doesn't make them any less critical to your survival, does it? Twenty credits, firm.
BABY CORSO: You can't take advantage of us like that! Look, there's women and children here!
BABY TEMPLE: All the women here are technically children.
BABY CORSO: It counts. The point is, we've gotta do something. How are we gonna dig ourselves out?
KHEM VAL: When it's time to go home Lord Scourge will use the dark techniques of the ancient Sith Lords to glare at the snow until it goes away.
BABY GUSS gulps.
BABY GUSS: I hate it when he does that.
LORD SCOURGE nods.
LORD SCOURGE: This will scarcely present a challenge.
