Halloween 2021 - Day 07
Cael: My lair, my beautiful lair...
Drago: Lair, nothing. This is an overpriced pod of a living space. I'm surprised they don't pipe in processing bug goo to eat.
And how'd the trees burn to a crisp, yet there's no damage to the floor?
Cael: Fire burns upwards, obviously.
Cael: Um, Drago. Do you hear a creaky wheel approaching?
You asked. I listened.
No longer do we starve on nothing but astronaut food.
You...with the hands. Pass out the mice!
CyberRaven: Mice?! We need no vermin here. Birds eat seeds, and sometimes bread right before they die.
Nonsense. Your friend Owl O'Clock eats them all the time.
CyberRaven: Wait, my friends stopped over, and I didn't know about it.
Well, I sent him away on account of space issues.
CyberRaven: Why, pray tell, are some of them neon?
Because they're flavored!
Sands O'Time: Bye. Thanks for stopping by.
Big Pumpy: Please PM me on Yahoo! chat.
Meow Mix: Okay, enough false pleasantries. These leaves are back. Why haven't they mulched yet?
Cael: You again. For what do I owe the pleasure?
Jeeves: I followed the scent of soot and sadness. What have you done to the place?
Cael: I can't claim responsibility for this. We were set up.
Jeeves: And who might you be?
Jeeves: Never mind. As your landlord, I must ensure the resale value of this property, and the likes of you aren't helping that much.
Cael: Do we have any hope of getting our security deposit back?
Jeeves: Assuredly not.
Jeeves: And to keep things on track, I will be forced to keep the decor suitably festive for the forseeable future. I will start with the ubiquitous 'table scatter'.
Drago: Thanks! We love it!
Jeeves: Good. The bill will be added to your rent.
Cael: Why are you acting so happy?
Drago: I just wanted him to leave. Now let's get this scattered.
Cael: Must we? It doesn't appear sharp like the bats, but it will be a tripping hazard for sure.
Cael: I have two issues with this: One...they're glass acorns, and that makes little sense.
Cael: And two, I can't make a pattern that will sit well with my OCD.
