The wilderness here adjoins a road, with a bus trundling one way or the other every five minutes, and a moped or truck less often than that. White chevrons indicate which way each lane of traffic is to go; there's a sidewalk, with a railing, but it doesn't look like it sees much use.
Okay! Then it's time to follow the next steps the website listed for getting the hair to someone who'll give Lornell money for it! (After a brief detour to get in a couple handstand-pushups and trim off and sweep up all their little blond ends.)
The hair needs to be put in plastic bags one per braid and then sent in with an ID number written on the box and on a card inside so they can associate the hair with the website account and pay out. Chirun will let Lorn use his account.
Chirun is really really helpful and Lornell is so glad he found them. Bag bag box box mail mail. After how long should Lorn expect to receive money, does it say?
It says that they will make the deposit four to six days after the hair arrives, which will depend on how fast a postal method they chose.
Alrighty. "Is there anything else we can think of that it seems like I should do today while you're still off from work?"
"Probably if you're going to take up eating on the regular we should go grocery shopping on the way home."
That's SO MUCH food. Lornell had figured there would be more food than they'd naturally expect, and probably even more food than they'd expect to expect when accounting for that, and even given both of those attempted calibrations this is still so much food.
They're willing to mostly go along with what Chirun likes, since worse comes to worst they can also start liking it, but insofar as they're stating preferences before they can pay for any of this themself it's mostly in favor of foods not available back on Citrelia: unrecognizable-to-Lorn kinds of fish (which is most of them) and fruits and vegetables (not as many), anything that needs high-tech equipment to make, that sort of stuff. Though only a handful of items get elevated to the level of Lorn expressing wanting Chirun to actually buy them today.
Chirun picks up baby spinach and some fish, and curry sauce and frozen chopped onions and toum, and passionfruits and prechopped peppers and couscous, and ice cream and cheese popcorn and sandwich sausage slices and a loaf of bread.
Some of these are already known to Lornell and some aren't but all of them are exciting! The fish is the only thing Lorn hasn't seen before (and of course they've seen fish, just not tuna specifically) but the presentation and the shape of everything and the way it's packaged is all very sci-fi. Is it coming up on time to eat any of this or is it all for later?
When they get home Chirun is going to throw some of the onions and spinach and peppers and fish in a pan and start the rice cooker.
Does he want any help with that?
No but he will show Lornell how to empty the dishwasher for future reference.
Lornell is happy to help! They like washing dishes but only because that's a convenient way to be; this is objectively much better.
"Wow, so I can just find people who like any chore and you can grab that, that's amazing. If only I knew someone who enjoyed litterbox maintenance, Enoby's box is getting a little janky and the bag sometimes jams."
"That seems kind of intrinsically rewarding!" (Or it probably will once they like animals a little more.) "I'd like to get a better understanding of how some of your technology actually works anyways, and to some extent I can just copy that and to some extent I won't really get it until I actually interact with the mechanisms."
"Sure, why not, I'll go take apart the box now and see if it's accumulated any problems since last time Enoby hassled me into fixing it."
The litter box is pretty complicated but all the parts snap together and unclip from each other, the problem is there's a bit snapped off from an important plastic section which means bits of litter can wind up in places they're not supposed to be and snag the bag or induce it to twist.
Snapped off as in broken entirely or just out of place?
Broken entirely. It isn't absolutely indispensible to the machine's functioning but it sure does make it work much less smoothly.
Does Chirun's knowledge think there's anything practical to be done in terms of fixing it or getting a replacement part?
Probably there is some form online where you can order parts but it would be annoying.
Likely to be more annoying than fixing the box regularly or just more concentrated annoyance?
Not even more concentrated annoyance, just more activation energy than Chirun applies when not being harassed by a cat.
