The guy pokes the controls on the thing for a minute, grumbling under his breath. Eventually he seems to get it to work right. 

"Good stuff. Here, buy yourself a snow cone or something." She is handed a rather sweaty dollar bill, though Walta said this guy has already paid.

"Thank you!" 

She decides to go window shopping.

Permalink

She'll probably have to fly a decent distance.

She can get to a corner store, or go a mile further and find a long line of stores with a parking lot out front. Mostly empty of cars. Or go all the way downtown to the big, shiny stores. Or go to a giant supermarket, they're easily findable.

She decides to go downtown.

Permalink

There's lots of stores (mostly with fancy names), and lots of cars and lots of people. This store has lots of shiny jewelry in the display. Business suits in the next one. Elaborate cakes and cookies. Flowers. Artsy stuff like shell necklaces in the next one.

Is she looking for anything in particular?

Permalink

Toys, books. Shinies.

Permalink

'Real' shinies are pretty expensive. These 'rhinestone' things are much cheaper, though.

There's a few book stores. There's semi-famous toy store at the end of the block if she has enough patience to get there.

Permalink

Colorful, fun decorations on the walls. Shelves and shelves and shelves and shelves of stuffed animals, little games like Simon Says, action figures, coloring books, building sets like LEGO and Kinect, dolls, sports stuff...

Nobody really pays attention to her unless she talks to them. Walta's notice-me-not at work.

Permalink

She might talk to any kids in the shop.

Permalink

Kids in the shop are mostly stuck with their parents.

There are three unattended ones messing with big legos in the legos section though.

Permalink

"Hi! Want to do the next speed build with us?"

Permalink

"The rules are, we each get a pile of bricks, and then I announce the theme, and we have five minutes to build, and then we all cast our vote for best build. Everyone gets two votes."

Permalink

Bricks are distributed.

"...Beach!"

Permalink

She was at the beach a few days ago. How fortuitous. 

Permalink

Let the building contest begin!

(Almost none of these bricks are the right color.)

Permalink

Than Tabitha will construct a Martian beach!

Permalink

The other three competitors make: A tiny section of beach with a 'towel' and 'umbrella' and someone laying down. A shark head sticking out of the 'water'. And a surfboard.

Which two does Tabby vote for? (Including her own)

Permalink

She votes for the shark head and the tiny section of beach.

Permalink

Shark head wins the contest!

"...Hey, what's with your arms? You a partsie or something?"
