Things are a Little Tense
An account from a Dallas staffer. Things are a little tense here at the Dallas Training Center ever since we ran out of 100 watt light bulbs. Mr. Gothard once had an epiphany, and he announced that young ladies could greatly benefit from sitting near and sleeping under 100 bulbs during their "time of the month."* Apparently the light rays provided some hormonal balance so that moods would not be so black. He recommended that young ladies embrace this method of overcoming moodiness.
This produced quite a sensation among the Dallas Training Center staff. The young ladies were slightly humiliated and objected to the incubation suggestion. The young men were not sure how to respond. Of course, no female staff wished to single herself out in need of a light, so in a move of solidarity, all of the women purchased portable reading lamps with 100 watt bulbs, and carried these wherever they go.
Unfortunately, the idiots in Purchasing forgot to buy a new batch of bulbs. We're in the middle of a young lady's conference this week, and boy, has it been tough.
