She stands naked at her mirror and begins her daily analysis. The first step is to measure the diameter of her limbs, neck, chest and torso. Following satisfactory results she moves on to her feet and hands. Scar healing cream is applied liberally and then she continues to look. All hair that may belie her true hair color is removed with extreme prejudice. If some aspect of her inspection was below what she deemed as safe, she would stay in until she could make the necessary adjustments, the longest of which had taken a week. Upon successful inspection she begins to dress and plot her day. She would eat today in spite of contrary instructions. She would eat eggs and consider her infertility and the children that might be available to her. She would see someone waiting for her to take instruction.
