Excuse Me

I should first start off by informing you about my home.

Welcome to the Bunker. I live here with many of my comrades and other creatures.  Some much larger than my kind, just so you know. I am a hamster after all. Though you may be wondering how I am communicating with you, it is quite simple. I am intelligent, I live with humans that build robots for fun, of course I can communicate with you.  Oh! A sunflower seed… Wait, back to the topic at paw.

The Bunker, larger and ever expanding. Though to us, the sole workforce that keeps everything going. Everything in here is small. We have a break room, a communal bedding sector for rest and the wheel room.

Us hamsters power everything, everything. The humans don’t exactly get that, the robots really don’t get that. Why can’t they get that? I smell popcorn… Right. I forgot to introduce myself.

My name is George, I am the elected king of the hamsters. I used to live with one of the humans here in the bunker, but it was  time for me to venture and make a name for myself.

In any case, it is a pleasure to meet your acquaintance. Though, I do forget why we were talking in the first place. Oh yes, that’s right. I just stopped you in the hallway.

Well, have a good day!

Don’t forget to drop off some almonds in the break room.
