Pictured here standing in front of her father (who is helping her don her protective interstellar travel suit, or “putting on the PITS” as the young people disparagingly call it) Brigittini, a young girl from Arcturus IV, is about to embark for a two-year stint as an au pair for a family on Aldebaran A VI. Despite the rigors of the 50 light-year journey, she is excited to experience a new culture, and most happy to be accompanied by her schoolmate and best friend, Elenianna,who will look after the children of a neighboring family. After all, when Elenianna first told Brigittini that she would be going away for two years completely out of texting range, Brigittini was sure she would absolutely die. What a relief when her family let her know that she could go, too.
