Prompt and DeviantArt link for the 27th.
There is rarely a problem in the USSC that can’t be solved with a coat of paint.
For the occasion where a coat of paint can’t solve the problem, the most reliable solution is Plan B. Plan B involved hiding whatever item can’t be painted over and hoping some junior enlisted troop happens to come along and find it.
It’s also helpful if the junior enlisted troop is not yours, otherwise you might feel guilty while standing next to that troop in the commander’s office.
