"Oh, and Kenneth doesn’t have a mink cat-o’-nine-tails.”
[…]"I didn’t think so.”
“It was suede.”
[…]"I am, suddenly, very glad you never played poker with us.”
"So…what. That’s okay now? So I can just lie to you when I’m on the Moon?”

Even if we hadn't been observing quarantine procedures, there wasn't anywhere on the colony for all 326 of us to gather. So everyone gathered in the largest common space of the module they were in and listened to Eugene address the moon.
We grieved, but we carried on because that was what made us human.
And then, of course, night flights when the stars come out. I remember seeing stars from the surface of Earth, but I've always been a city girl, so they have been muted pale things that fluttered against a sky lit by sodium vapor lamps. On the Moon, when I'm flying at night, it is as if someone has spilled diamonds on black velvet. I would kill for a gown that looked like the stars in space.
