A long time ago, Best Beloved, when the tree people returned from their vacation, they were very tired. They’d gone to the Bahamas, and it was a very long walk back.
So when the tree people got home, they wanted to sleep. But they couldn’t. The mostly hairless apes that lived next door kept them up all night long. The apes were making babies really loudly.
So the next day, while the apes slept peacefully, breathing clearly, the tree people returned the favor. That night, the apes’ noses were too clogged to make babies.
And the tree people slept peacefully.
