Smirkulees’ Quest pt 5

When you pay people minimum wage I guess they only care so far. I had a friend who was at a bowling alley not too long ago trying to get a stuffed animal out of the claw machine with his bare hands. He had lost plenty of money on it before and was fully prepared to spend more but it was busted this time. A teenager who worked there came up and was excited by their actions and admitted “Stealing is the best!” and got him a coathanger to aid in his efforts and told him he’d watch out for his boss and whistle if he came. Our friend (who’s birthday it was) ended up with a stuffed gorilla after all.

Maybe I’m overthinking things, but when I went to design what the ogre would be facing all day, I thought a landscape calendar would be suitable. Between chapters of his book, he just stares up at the green fields, wishing he was outside guarding a forest stronghold like his Froglodyte friends.
