|"What's it looking at?"|
It could be because I didn't have my raktajino yet... but for some reason, I got quite upset about this statue today. It was like it was taunting me. Challenging me. As if it was saying 'I am stone and you are bone, so I am superior. Deal with it'. The nerve of that inanimate object!
While every other day I'd go back inside to get me a nice cup of tea - earl grey, hot - followed by a raktajino, today I chose to do something different: I chose to confront that statue. So I flew up to it. It might be ten times taller than I am, but that didn't stop me from telling it the truth, once and for all!
|"You don't look so tough..."|
The second I raised my hand, I accidentally touched the statue. And then disaster struck: a loud rumbling could be heard, and before I knew it, the entire statue lay on the ground, shattered into a million pieces.
|"Think anyone would notice?"|
'Whoops', I thought to myself.
I had to do something to make this right... perhaps with the help of Engineering's industrial replicator, I could create another statue? But where would I get a template for it, so that the replicator would be able to create a large enough statue, that fast? Pretty soon many Starfleet personnel would start their day, and they'd certainly notice that the statue was no longer there...
Then I had an idea...
As I looked at the new statue, I couldn't help but smile. It was quite an improvement, if I did say so myself. Now... hopefully nobody would notice the difference...
