Shopping With Seven
Time to sneak on to the Cappy's Journal to recount the latest incident. Keep quiet about it. Don't want to end up in the soup! giggle!
Bev and I are all ready to go off on our latest shopping spree; well it is time to go looking for some summer clothes and we both need new bikinis.
We head off to the Transporter Room, ready to beam down to the Starfleet Mall so that we can stock our wardrobes to the hilt.
A voice stops us in our tracks. It's Seven of Nine.
"Where are you two females going!" she demands to know.
"Err..Deanna and I are just going shopping" says Bev, with a nervous voice.
"Why haven't you invited me?" Seven asks, "I wish to learn about human behaviour, and I have it in my database that shopping is a very human experience."
That's true! giggle!
"Well, Seven, we didn't think you'd want to come." I say, "After all, it is such a boring experience..isn't it, Bev?" The lies I tell!
"Err..oh, yes, Deanna, we dislike it intensely."
"Then why do you go?" asks Seven.
"Err..it's a job that the Cappy...er I mean Captain Picard tells us we have to do. You wouldn't like it, Seven." I tell her.
"I shall come along and find out for myself!" she says.
We have no say in all this.
The three of us beam down to the Starfleet Mall. Everybody looks at us, and in particular at Seven. Then they run away.
Shopping with a Borg drone does drive the crowds away! giggle!
We go into L'singa's Lingerie to check out the latest underwear fashions. Bev and I see some items that we both like and go to buy them.
"Err...they're on the house, ladies" says L'singa nervously looking at Seven, "You've been such good regular customers."
We leave and go to Ferengi Footwear and find some very sexy shoes that we both like. Seven finds a pair that she likes as well.
"It's err..all free, ladies!" says the Ferengi shopowner, as he takes a look at Seven, "We like to be generous...making a profit isn't everything."
I never thought I'd hear a Ferengi say that! giggle!
The three of us go around the shops; everywhere it's the same. We don't get charged for anything.
"This is most strange." says Seven, "Why are shops prepared to give their goods away for no reason? I do not understand it."
"It is odd, isn't it Bev?" I say with a wink to her. giggle!
We beam back to the Enterprise, loaded with goods from shops.
"I think we'll have to take Seven with us on future shopping trips, Deanna" Bev tells me with a smile as we walk back.
That's it for this entry in the Cappy's Journal. Just in time before he returns. Now time to go back and try on my new items! giggle!
