A gratuitous shower scene

I still don't have the water systems fixed. What do you do when you need to get clean?

We have a stall outside where Helix takes a bucket and dumps water on your head.

A robot to dump water on my head instead of a person. How would I survive without these modern conveniences?

This is it?

Yep. Our outdoor shower stall.

Made of the finest salvaged aluminum and state of the art mud.

Plumbing. The next thing I fix is definitely the plumbing.

We even have two water temperatures. Extra cold and freezing.

You've got black stripes!

That's because your vision system is rated P.G.

Anything you see beyond that rating is automatically blacked out.

Do you suppose the P.G. rating extends to my tactile senses as well?

Helix, I don't know. But you'd better not even THINK about trying to find out!

You're not used to washing outside, are you?

I was on a space station before this. Why? Am I doing something wrong?

You're missing a step.

The correct order is “lather, rinse, remove leeches, repeat”.

Oh, ick!

Look. A raccoon.

Cute little guy. I wonder what he wants?

Your towel, apparently.

HEY! YOU COME BACK WITH THAT!

Come back with my towel!

Yip!

Ackpth! I've been blinded!

Sometimes you have to think fast.

I can see again. Where's Florence?

Back on the ship.

Already? I didn't know she could run that fast.

So, what did she think of the leeches?

She wouldn't even try one. I told you they needed ketchup.

That was embarrassing.

I've done a lot of things as an engineer, but I have never, ever, streaked my captain before.

This is one new accomplishment that's definitely NOT going on my resume.

Humans can see color. Most humans like blue, so that's the color I'll set my dress.

Your dress is now BLUE.

In college, I once used hair dye to dye myself blue. Logically, it should have worked, but friends say I just looked weird.

Sigh. It's always difficult trying to appear attractive to a sense you don't have.

You look nice.

Thank you, Helix.

Oh, no need to thank me. My self preservation routine prompts me to say that whenever I see a known female in a new outfit.

I did not need to know that.

It's evolution in action. Robots who give their honest opinion tend not to survive.
