Story behind the Special Research
Zzz… Bwuh? Oh! Sorry about that, %PLAYERNAME%. I’m *yawn* running on very little sleep. Candela gave me some of the coffee beans she’s been raving about, so I did the neighborly thing and gave ’em a whirl.
The coffee was delicious, but WAY stronger than I’m used to. It kept me wide awake into the wee hours of the night. Getting a good amount of sleep is essential if you want to keep your brain sharp. Speaking personally, exhaustion tends to steer me toward more…outlandish theories.
Hm? You want to hear one? Well…all right. But let’s keep it between us, OK? Somewhere on my desk there’s an early draft of a paper called “The Aerodynamics of Various Hats as Worn by Pikachu.” It’s very well researched, I assure you!
But that’s enough about me. Do you have any theories of your own you’d like to explore? Why don’t you sleep on it and get back to me?
Ah—hello, %PLAYERNAME%! Candela’s extra-strength coffee is finally out of my system, so I’m back to snoozing like a Snorlax—and thinking up more promising ideas for papers.
“The Effects of Elevation on Snorlax Snoring Patterns” is going to be a hit, I just know it! How about you, %PLAYERNAME%? Feeling refreshed, I hope? I’m sure whatever you’ve thought up over the last few days is more than worthy of research!
Now get out there and seize the day—and remember to get a good night’s sleep!
