“Hey, lady! You’re late.” Vidisha tried to look stern, pointing at the clock in our locker room.

“I’m sorry! I forgot my clothes!” It took me a frustrating number of tries to get my locker open. I threw my bag in and began changing rapidly.

She chuckled, her tone singsong with the much-used cliche. “You would forget your head if it weren’t attached.”

“I...” Everything screeched to a halt for a moment as I wracked my brain. The smirk I had ready for the retort that never materialized turned glum. “Yep.”

Vidisha stopped mid-air on her imaginary drum kit. “... That’s not exactly one of your signature ba-dum-swish moments.”

“Kind of having one of those days...” I walked over to the mirror as I dressed. The navy scrubs emblazoned with our college crest in gold were comfortable, if not exactly the most tailored things. The most professional pajamas known to humankind.

And I am a fan of pajamas. And the cosmos. )
