Day 345: A Very Shiny Intruder

For beings who are naturally quite pretty and photogenic, “shinier” is always better.

However, even when you are very shiny and reflective, it is just common courtesy to knock first before entering.

Failure to complete this necessary social formality can result in a slightly (much) less friendly reception than you had hoped for.

Hello there. You are very shiny and reflective. But I didn't hear you knock.
