[It's a fine day in Burby. The sun is shining, the birds are singing...

Misery does not approve. The raincloud that has taken to following her around is the only thing that makes venturing out for fresh tea-makings a possibility. Seriously, why is the sun out so often? Is it out to kill her? Malignant melanoma is a very real concern here.

After a few minutes outside, she's more than ready to give up on her shopping venture. In a last-ditch attempt to collect the final ingredient she needs to brew up some of her great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother's cure-all tea, Misery addresses the whole of Burby.]


WHERE CAN I FIND POWDERED TOAD LEGS?

[Well. The whole of Burby that's within easy shouting distance, anyway. In a much quieter monotone, she adds:]

Dried toad legs are good, too. I guess I can powder them myself.

"I sell some?" He appears next to her. It wasn't hard to find her after such a shout.
element_wizard: (I'm looking at you sideways)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-25 10:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes. So it is.

"I can yes. Why do you need some?"
element_wizard: (oh now there's an idea)

"That sounds like it's got a great pedigree, though you might want to be careful. Something's been stealing tea related items."
element_wizard: (b&w thinky)

"Dunno, to be honest. Haven't looked into it. I'm a coffee person myself."

Hence the coffee urn theft rankles him.
element_wizard: (sorta there interested)

"People drinking coffee is a moral disease?" He's confused. "I think I have a bit of both. I'd have to double check however."
element_wizard: (red scarf)

"Yes, but that doesn't always mean anything. I'm a bit on the scatterbrained side having a bit too much happening in my head all at once."

He nods.

"Sure. I can do that. It looks like a nice place."
element_wizard: (b&w thinky)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-26 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
"You're welcome. If you ever need anything come and find me. I'll be happy to help."

He so wants to adopt her.
