[Suite] Splinter, habits

It's easy to fall into a routine, especially when you are retired.

(That's an odd word. "Retired". How do you retire from something that you never considered a job, but your life? If you retire from life, what's the opposite if you're still above ground?)

Living with Splinter 24/7 ends up being easier than Sallie originally imagined that it would be. Minor hiccups here and there, but what else is to be expected from two people literally from two different universes?

Now if only Sallie can talk Splinter into DVRing some of those shows of his so they could have lunch at a decent hour...

A random Tuesday, Sallie comes home from seeing one of the doctors in the infirmary, grimacing and carrying a folder.

"How was your shift?"

"Oh, just fine, bao bei. Nothin' entertaining to report."

The folder gets shoved in a drawer of Sallie's nightstand, and Sallie attempts very earnestly to forget about it.
