If they're Australians, probably a life a lot like the one back home,
just a
bit easier, milder climate and less dangerous wildlife. (OK, the climate
milder, but the wildlife is.) During office hours, they'd be tucked away
an air-conditioned monitoring room, sipping a coldie and swapping yarns
whether the MegaSkunk in the company's ornamental garden is more
venomous than
their Boss (Consensus is yes, but it doesn't smell as bad..). Taking
of the Sauna outside to sweat out the consumed alcohol during a
Tea-Break. Reading
"A la Rechereche du Temps Perdue" and discussing Jean-Paul Sartre and
Proust over a Pie Floater and a nice Chianti at lunchtime. Taking
Sickies when
there's a Cricket Match on. Taking a few hours each week to do their
Anti-Killerworm Patrol duties, and once or twice a year, burying the
dead. Getting
blotto at the wake, wrestling the resident Megaskunk in the garden to a
then having to be sent to hospital for the anti-venene and a really,
thorough bath. Writing a Book about it. The Usual, in other words. The
Men would
do pretty much the same thing too.
