That image really suits her.
But you gotta feel sorry for Noah when she´s around:
"Hello, Bralik," she said agreeably.
"Hi, Alyssa," Bralik said, pulling something from her tunic. She held it out toward Noah. "And how are you, little grub? I brought you some candy!"
Noah scowled. "I didn't like that last stuff you gave me. It tasted yucky."
Bralik's eyes popped wide. "The honey beetle clusters? Oh, I'm hurt."
Ogawa tapped her son on the shoulder. "Noah, I thought I taught you to be more polite than that."
Noah sighed dramatically and held out his hand. "Thank you for the candy, Aunt Bralik." She deposited a hard bar of a translucent, greenish substance in his hand. He sniffed at it tentatively. "What is it?"
"Slug Slime," Bralik said, smiling. "Now why don't you go get Auntie Bralik some water, and she'll forget your lapse in manners."
As soon as Noah had scampered out of the room, Ogawa asked, "What was that?"
Bralik shrugged. "Slug Slime? I don't have any idea what's in it. But grubs of all species seem to like it."
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
