"But I don't want new clothes!" said Timer.
"You're going to look so cool," They told her.
"I like black. Black is always in style."
"Black and red just makes you look a little intimidating."
"How am I intimidating? I'm just a timer."
"Exactly. You're scaring people off before they get to see your true personality."
"Does it have to be blue, though? Everyone wears blue."
"Well, yes, that's because it's popular. Look, here comes your sister, see how cute she is?"
Timer blinked at her little sister, Mines Remaining. "Wow. You...do look kind of sleek."
Mines Remaining smiled. "Hey, come over here, I've got something to tell you."
Timer slunk over. "Yeah?"
"I...I don't want to embarrass you in front of Them. But you know your leading zeroes?"
Timer blushed. Red. Just like her. "Yeah. They're so unsightly! And they make me feel like I'm carrying extra weight, especially when the really good players get things done in less than triple digits."
