In this new segment, I am going to share with you an awesome yet trivial victory that we sometimes achieve but go hopelessly unappreciated. Do I have you hooked yet? Read on...
Unlike Waffles, who will shell out for WoW when there are perfectly good poker tables to be played, I like to drop by Kingdom of Loathing. I get my 15-20 minutes a day fix and I am done. and I am no stranger to computer games... which makes this so much more fascinating.
The following actually happened not a hour ago...
You step outside your home office to get some air. It has just rained and the air smells pleasant but its very humid. The mailbox flag is down.
But its sooooo bright out.
You are carrying the following:
Sunglasses (in shirt pocket)
You put on your sunglasses and return you regular glasses to your shirt pocket.
As you approach the mailbox, you see your hedge clippers left lying in the driveway. "Oh yeah, I need to cut a branch with hornets on it".
The end is bent. You'll have to fix that first.
You are at the mailbox. A sewer gate is below your feet.
BEND CLIPPERS WITH GRATE
Using your superior chimp intellect, you stick the end of the hedge clippers through the grate and push down. Its called leverage! The hedge clippers are now repaired. As you stand up, your glasses slip out of your pocket and into the sewer.
Even if you could put your big mits through the grate, its a good 10 feet to the bottom.
At the bottom you see some recent rain water, some green moss, mudd. And Glasses.
You enter the house
You have a vast array of items. Try something...
ok, you now have a coathanger
GET THE THING YOU CLEAN OUT THE DRAIN WITH?
A real snake or the tool?
GET SNAKE TOOL
You have a snake tool.
ATTACH COATHANGER TO SNAKE
You make a series of unbends and bends and manage to attach your COATHANGER to your SNAKE. Hehe... sounds dirty.
You fashion a hook at the end of the COATHANGER.
You fish around for a few minutes and hook your glasses. Huzzah!
You slowly lift up your glasses to the top of the grate being careful to not jostle them.
You win! Your adventure score is 95%. (you left the bees)
Your time was 11 minutes.
Thank you for playing Trivial Victory.
HAHAHAHAHA TAKE THAT UNIVERSE!!!
