Tuesday, July 3rd: 5pm KT - King's Royal Lamp $925
I'm relaxing on the couch watching "So You Think You Can Dance" when the phone rings.
"Oh, dear, here we go again." I think to myself.
"Merthyn. It's Arte. We've gotta talk right now!"
He sounds really upset.
"I can't believe you would keep something like this from me!"
"Whoa, slow down Arte. Gimmie a minute to turn the TV down."
Of course the remote is missing, so I have to get up change the volume on the set.
"Darn, I'm going to miss hearing Fergie sing." I say under my breath.
To Arte I say, "OK, tell me what's going on."
"I'll tell you what's going on. Half of the customers who walked in my shop today asked me about you!"
"Really?" I smile. "Were they cute girls?"
"No, no, no. It's nothing like that. Besides, most of my customers think you're a girl anyway."
I cringe, but manage to keep my mouth shut.
"The reason I'm calling is that people are saying you've discovered the secret to one of the new recipez!"
"Huh? Where would anyone get an idea like that?"
"Most of them said that they 'heard it somewhere', but one kid told me that she saw the Quendidot Buzzitree in a picture of your yard."
"Arte, you know me better than that. If I knew how to make any one of those new recipez, you'd be the first person I would call. Besides, I haven't been doing that much cooking lately anyway. Everyone around here is tired of eating Gunk".
Arte laughs. "You're right. I shouldn't have jumped on about this. I don't understand why this recipe thing is making me so crazy."
"It's okay Arte. I think the problem is that you're used to being the one with all of the secrets and you don't like the fact that there's something out there you don't know."
"I guess you're right, Merthyn. How'd you get so smart? C'mon by the shop later. I've got yer list for you. See ya soon." He hangs up.
I hang up the phone and turn back to the show.
I'm just in time to see Jessie get voted off. "Wow, how on earth did that happen?"
Next week, I don't care who is trying to get a hold of me, I'm turning my Kinz Phone off.
