Timber Bottle Mail #9

The day had already been and gone by the time I got chance to load up Timber tonight. The moon was high in the sky and one of my constellations was beginning to come into view.

No new hybrids spawned since yesterday, but I did receive my letter from Boondox! My donation was used to complete a new irrigation system in town.

Of course, Rocco was still sick so I ran over to Nooks to pick up some more medicine before closing time. Honestly, Rocco, you owe me big time for all this.

Finally, some new dialogue! Could it be that Rocco is recovering at last? I sure hope so! That way I can finally work on getting him out of town. Icon_0029_Party-popper

Shrunk visited Timber tonight, and I found him wandering just south of Rocco’s place.

He asked me how my “emotional exploration” was going. I informed him that things were going pretty good! Icon_0018_Music-note

… Which is apparently the wrong answer unless you’re in the market for an uncomfortable heart-to-heart, rather than new emotions. Noted.

Round two!

Shrunk decided I should watch him to learn all about a fun, new emotion he called “distress”. He told me a story about his early days practicing stand-up. It began with an impromptu comedy show in some restaurant he found himself in.

Oh, how they all laughed!

Poor guy, at least he can use him misfortune as an educational tool for this numb, emotionless shell of a boy!

Baabara was taking a stroll along the beach. It seems she had lost track of time and had to cancel a cute bonding activity she had planned for us. Icon_0023_Shell-2

She asked me to deliver a letter to Marina, so I headed back inland to go find her.

I found Marina wandering by the town gate, but she managed to ping me before I could hand over Baabara’s letter. She wanted me to try a quiz she had created.

This pop quiz consisted of one question: what kind of ice cream would she like right now? The options were “tiny” or “normal size”, and of course I chose the second option – what kind of freak would choose a tiny ice cream over your average, tried-and-tested cone size?

Baabara’s letter left Marina “so very happy”. So happy, in fact, she wanted to share it with me before sending me on my way to “give a big hug to Baabara” for her.

Though, I can’t shake the feeling that Marina can’t actually read…

Rodeo had pinged me during Marina’s pop quiz, so I decided to see what was up with him since I really don’t talk to him as often as most of my other neighbours.

Aaaaand that’s enough Rodeo for this week…

Until next time! Icon_0027_Lucky-clover
