"For today's panel on pre-spaceflight Terran literature we have Rosewood Tae, Thiry-Second Bloom; Alepha Thalma, Twelfth Bloom; Malianolia Phoros, Third Bloom; and this absolutely cutie, Mats Syringa, Twenty-Third Floret!"

"Isn't he adorable?"

"You deserved it! Liliac, tell her she deserved it!"
"Please excuse my floret, everyone, he's had a difficult day. Mats, come here and I'll give you something to calm you down."
"I'm perfectly calm!!!"
"Little one, no one believes that. Now, come here!"
