Alexander The Celebrity Chef (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Jadzia Dax
Worfie is in one of his bad moods....nothing new there. His is annoyed that because his son Alexander took part in a cooking assignment at the Enterprise school, his son now wants to be a celebrity chef!
As Worf thinks slaying Romulans and anyone else that gives him a bad hair day, we are all on our way to see Alexander's teacher Miss Forrester.
We all enter the classroom; Miss Forrester is just packing away the books.
"Hello, Lieutenant Worf, Jadzia and Alexander." she says, "What can I do for you?"
"You can begin by telling him how to slay a savage K'targh beast!" snaps Worfie, "Alexander does not need to know how to make a fairy cake and apple flan!"
"Actually, he's rather good." Miss Forrester replies, "He made a delightful chocolate sundae today, although I must admit he used a few colourful expletives to Katy, the girl he was sitting with. She went red and I had to keep him in for detention."
Alexander looks shamed.
"I wanted to be a celebrity chef." he says, "I thought swearing to a person nearby was part of the cooking procedure."
"Well it's not." Worf tells him, "When we get back, you will be punished."
"Don't be hard on him, Lieutenant." Miss Forrester pleads with him, "He's a good boy at heart, and may do very well at cooking...if he cuts the profanity!"
Worfie snorts, and we leave.
"Let me punish Alexander." I whisper, "I think I know something appropriate."
We get back to our quarters.
"I'm looking forward to dinner." Alexander says to me, "What are we having, Jadzia?"
"I've no idea." I tell him, "You're doing the cooking tonight...and no using replicators!"
"But....." Alexander flusters.
"You wanted to be a celebrity chef." I say with a smile, "Now's your time to do it."
Alexander grumbles, and makes his way to the kitchen.
"....And no swearing, either!" I add.
Worfie gives me a peck on the cheek.
"Well done, Jadzia" he laughs, "You may well have changed Alexander's mind about a career in cooking."
