Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Now we're in the countdown to Christmas
As every good child knows;
We're in the festive spirit to the hilt
Braving the cold and snows.
We're penning cards to every relative
Despite our spelling woes,
Using Wiktionary to check up
Whether it's brothers' or bro's
And every time we lag and feel like stopping
The irksome path we chose,
We're sustained by plenteous drinks and pies
And a log fire to warm our toes.

A quick countdown of 3 – 2 - 1 and China Blue and Flora-Dora were back on the street and walking quickly in the bitter cold night air towards the vacant lot under the Freeway (defined by Wiktionary as 'a toll-free highway' so it was an appropriate place for hookers and whores to charge a toll for passage into their interiors) and it was only a few minutes later that a fourth pair of Truckies sauntered along; negotiation was perfunctory because all parties knew the current going rate-per-service and the girls separated, each with the Trick who had selected her; in a dark corner, well hidden from view of any passing traffic - pedestrian or automobile - her Trick laid his battered ol jacket on the ground and China knelt between him and took his tool in her mouth, drawing it deep down her throat to the very hilt and using her lips, tongue, mouth and the steady rhythm of her head, with his hands on either side, to bring forth the sustenance she craved and which was the principal purpose of her night-shift; his groan as he came was matched by the shudder in his legs and the deeper, final shove of his pelvis, driving his cock even further, and China's nose was squashed among the curly hair of his pubis; "oh, fuck, yeah, Babe!" – he sighed and held her head pressed to him until she thought she would suffocate, which was when she slowly leaned back and his cock, already beginning to return to that post-ejaculation softness, slippery and hot, emerged and dangled between his thighs: "another job well done," thought China, another course in her endless quest for as much cum as she could get; mouth, cunt, anus – it didn't matter which to her, for quantity and variety was her game, just so long as she got her due – were her principal assets and she knew that she was good at this job, perhaps even better than in her Day Job as the DA! but her looks wouldn't last forever. so she determined to make the most of every night, before going back to her apartment and grabbing the two hours sleep, which fortunately was all her batteries needed to be recharged for the day ahead! and she almost laughed, for the Tricks, Johns, Toms, Dicks and Harrys thought they were in charge, dominating and abusing a cheap slut who had been put on this Earth solely for their pleasure: Stupid Fuckers! they had only one Cock to her three Holes and she had the skills which could induce premature ejaculation any time she wanted and while it might take them 20 minutes tops and more like an hour to return to adequate erection, she could take on 20 more guys in that time; but as he thanked her – for he was rather a gentlemanly John – and walked away, with the cold turning the wetness in his pants to uncomfortable ice, and she lit another cigarette, wondering how many more she might get tonight, for once she started, it could only take a supreme effort of will (or a blizzard that emptied the streets of even the most determined Tricks) for her to head back to her car early and re-enter her Public Life, so she checked her watch and saw that it was only 2:30am then heard Flora's heels rattling out a staccato on the paving as she sought her friend and WOW! she had a couple of calenders in her hand and was waving them excitedly!
