The Birthday Tixie comes out, dressed in Barrayaran fatigue uniform.  He
snaps to attention and says:

"Today, in 1959, our fellow listie Masha Sten-Clanton came into the world.
Masha, for your birthday, you will be taken into Barrayaran orbit, to
inspect the Barrayaran fleet as part of Emperor Gregor's entourage.
Afterwards, you will be invited to a feast in your honor in the officers'
mess, and offered a chance to learn how to pilot a drop shuttle."

Doing a left-about-face, the Tixie marches off, muttering about "got to get
back to that damn brightwork...stupid inspections!"
