[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.

[ Well. That was a hard shout to ignore. So Jane won't ignore it. She was feeling a little bad about scaring Misery before, anyway. ]

... [ But seriously, toad legs? ] Are you doing a spell?

Don't most people use. Leaves?

[ If Iroh has been making her toad leg tea, she doesn't want to know. ]

I guess that you might be out of luck.

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-02-02 05:36 am (UTC)(link)
[ Oh dear. ] Maybe you could find a substitute?

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-02-06 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
They probably aren't too happy about it either?

[ She's so bad at making jokes. ]

Anyway, this place is we-- [ Really, really weird. ] wildly resourceful. I wouldn't be surprised if someone knew where to find some. Or at least... toads.

You're welcome. [ She shrugs. ] People who come here have to stick together.
