Day 1: Write a scene saying "Hello"

Reginald Pryce Cox was, by all pre-subjugation recorded standards, a model human being. Given the best of educations, the sole heir of a rich political family, and seemingly perfect in many ways, he was the epitome of the then American heartland. Able to follow a child’s desire into adulthood, he became the face and voice of the NASA program, many attributing him as the sole reason the program was even allowed to continue. So when Landing occurred, there was little doubt as to whom would be sent as emissary.

Reginald Cox, as due his upbringing, as also an extremely arrogant SOB. Not realizing his entire life to that point had been a series of buyouts, bribes and not a few depraved altercations, Cox truly believed he had earned his way through life. He also believed himself to be as intelligent as the vast paperwork said him to be (see: depraved altercations) and when going through the months long period of learning interspecies communication needed to extend a peaceful hand , retained little of the nuances he was being taught.

So when presented before the Dy Crellian Planetary Inspection Committee, he believed himself to being saying to them, “We welcome you to Earth, may our peoples share generations of knowledge” while not understanding that his arm movements, vocal tone, and actual use of his physical voice gave an entirely different message (said message has been purged from all non-classified documents, and is taught in educational cycles as “The Great Ass-Wiping”). Such began the classification and subjection of human beings as a “non-evolving species” and the rise in use of “Cox” to mean “an extreme miscalculation in judgment that could have been easily preventable.”

Alternate uses: “Cox it”, “Great Cox”, “You’ve just Coxed us”, “Way to go Reginald”, and “Just add honey and a handshake” (meaning and origin of alternate phrasing unknown)
