Me: Up and at 'em, recruits! I am your commanding officer, and welcome to Space Camp. This summer we have the chance to compete in the Summer Olympics, to give ourselves a name, and to make our team proud. I'm gonna whip you nancies into shape and train you to be athletes. Now get in formation. Atten-tion!
Me: Lemme take a look atcha. Cadet Bryce, step forward.
Bryce: Yes sir!
Me: I am a female, Cadet Bryce. You will address me as ma'am.
Bryce: Yes ma'am, sorry ma'am.
Me: I see you are age 39 today, a mixed breed "Tamsin" and bred right here at Medusa.
Bryce: Yes ma'am, I'm homegrown.
Me: Don't suck up, cadet. You will not receive any special treatment in this program. Back in line. Cadet Idris, step forward.
Idris: Yipe, that's me....
Me: Yes, cadet. I see here you are age 45, a purebred 2nd gen Labrador, and you're joining us from Kaleidoscope. Ah, yes, a well known kennel over at PKC. I love shaping up you fancy shower types. We'll see if you're good for more than standin' around an lookin' pretty. At ease.
Idris: Thank you, ma'am?
Me: Cadet Padma, step forward.
Me: Ah hell, who sent me a cat? This can't be right.
Padma: I assure you sir...
Me: It's ma'am
Padma: Ma'am, there's no mistake. Catz are allowed to participate in the Summer Olympics as well. I'll save you some reading and introduce myself. I am age 39, a brexed Russian Blue mixie, and am from NightShade's Petz.
Me: Fall back, cadet. And you'd do well to not speak out of line.
Padma: I'm back in line, now, sir, may I speak?
Me: It's ma'am *rolls eyes*. Ah, the last recruit. Let me take a look atcha, Cadet Stunning.
Stunning: Cadet Stunning ready and reporting for duty!
Me: Dial down the enthusiasm, cadet. My report says you're age 57, another Tamsin, and you were adopted from Thor. You also have show dogs for parents over at PKC. Well lah-dee-dah, looks like I got my hands full of trophies already this year. By the end of the summer I expect to have lots more. Now everyone return to your quarters and report back tomorrow at 0800 hours. Be in uniform. Dis-missed!
Bryce: Does this mean we're getting paid?
Idris: No, 'quarters' refers to the barracks where we will dwell after hours and sleep.
Padma: I suppose there's something in this direction that interests me.
Stunning: This is going to be so fun! I can't wait to see my uniform!
