Dressy stuff? Check."
Looking around my room, I made last run through my checklist of things to bring.
"Spare ammo? Check.
Sun Screen? Check."
Space is all good and well, but once in a while it is fun to go planet side - experience real sunlight, breath real air, and all that. And after all the excitement of the last weeks, not to mention the daily industrial grind, a vacation sounds just right up my alley.
Life Insurance? Check.
. . . aaand that's it."
Satisfied, I zipped close my bag and shouldered it.
"You're outta here?", called Eta out from her desk as I left my room.
"Yeah. Two weeks of lounging and mindless relaxation await!", I replied, adding "You should try it some day."
"Naah, I'd be bored halfway into the flight down."
I chuckled, "That's the point."
Eta grimaced, and I threw her a casual salute. "See you in 14, Sis. Don't blow the place to pieces while I'm gone, please?"
"Bah! You're no fun!"
And with that, the door closed behind me and I hurried to the docking level. I had a shuttle to catch!
