Last-Minute Christmas Shopping
Guest Poster: Deanna Troi
"This is madness!" complains Beverly as she, Jenny Baxter, Jadzia Dax, Britney, and I go through the streets of the Starfleet Mall, "We could just get so much of it on the replicator."
"Don't be such a downer, Bev." I reply, "Surely you know that there is so much fun in shopping? I just love doing it, even when it involves pushing and shoving."
"Things might have been a lot easier if we had bought Seven along with us." says Jadzia, "The last time we did, people were running from the streets in panic."
"That's true." Bev answers, "But we got into a lot of trouble over that. The Admirals wern't too happy over that....hey! I want that!"
Beverly quickly snatches the last on a pile of pretty camisoles on a pile before another woman can get it.
"Well I'm here to shop for an exotic negligee for Will." I tell the others.
"Cool!" Britney laughs, wearing her loose blue top, red shorts, torn stockings and boots, "He should look great in that!"
We all laugh.
"Naturally it's for me to wear, but a present for Will."
All the others agree, and decide to get something for them to wear that the Cappy, Worf, Data and T'Pol will like.
After we all come out of Negligee Heaven, we discuss where to go next.
"Well I need to go to the hardware store to get a new circuit for Data." Jenny tells us, "He'll be pleased at that, as the old one was showing a bit of wear and tear.
We all have supressed giggles, although fails to see the humour in it.
Later, we go into Gumbal's to look in the Ladies Section. We might be shopping for Christmas, but always look for goodies for ourselves! giggle!
Britney buys herself some new extra-tough Dr Martens boots, Bev buys an exotic dress, Jadzia buys two matching Klingon fighting outfits, I buy a blue mini-dress and Jenny buys a recharger for her multi-phase disruptor.
All in all, that's a good day's shopping! giggle!
