Sometimes we all need a good friend to hoof us in the face.

      Choan: “I was so depressed that I got it done in zero hours. Now what am I going to do with these leftover hours? Oh well, I guess I will just jinx some more things. What else could go wrong?”

    “Shrapnel came through the window! And it sucked out Diller before it self-sealed!”

    The first “it” has to be the vacuum of space, but seems a reference to the previously mentioned shrapnel because having both “it”s refer to the window doesn’t work. Maybe “And Diller got sucked out before it self-sealed!” would be clearer?

        I mean, when water is rushing into a tube, you can say the tube sucked something carried by the water, even in it’s passive state in the situation.
        In this case you -could- say the hole in the window is what sucked Diller out, then self-sealed. “It” being the hole both times. Inaccurate, but it IS something that could be said, not all we say is accurate anyway

    Now, did Diller’s suckout save Choan from further self-recrimination and propel Choan into helper mode again? Is her luck functioning in that direction?

    Or was it merely the opportunity to get Diller into a situation where her luck would act to change the very nature of the Strib fleet combat and resolve the situation without further bloodshed?

    It all depends on how Diller’s luck functions, and at what scale. Me, I think I’ll get another lemonade and ponder what Monday’s episode might bring. I won’t be disappointed, I think.

      Could you get me a lemonade too, while you’re at it? And put a hefty dose of gin in it too, for good measure. Or vodka, if you’re out of gin. Thanks! I’ve got some Russian Tea Cookies to share, if you’re up for them.
