No one can get away from it, or even think of getting away from it; it is three o'clock in the morning, and they have danced out all their joy, and danced out all their strength, and all the strength that unlimited drink can lend them--and still there is no one among them who has the power to think of stopping.
She works in a canning factory, and all day long she handles cans of beef that weigh fourteen pounds.
She milked half the cows, separated the cream, took charge of the dairy house and washed all the cans.
