Tuesday, June 26th: 3pm KT> Master Grill $4450
I woke up this morning, expecting some voicemail from Arte.
I checked my KinzPhone and there was nothing.
"Hmmm..." I thought to myself.
After the other night, I figured that Arte and I were back on good terms and, well, maybe he didn't like me laughing about the deer!
Since I actually woke up a little bit before my alarm, I decided to move a bit quicker and try and stop by Arte's on the way to work.
I quickly jumped in the shower and threw on some WZ Jeans and a T-Shirt and headed straight to Arte's.
Like I've said before, it's pretty much on the way to work anyways, so no harm in checking.
I walk up to the door and I see people outside again, just like the other night.
And they were just as upset.
"Can you believe he's still closed? How am I going to get my Goalie Mask Shelf? I have the holes in the wall to hang it already!" someone asked.
I thought Arte was being irresponsible again, but there was a sign on the door this time that read.
===Inventory & Book-keeping all day, come back later===
"I guess Arte's taking advantage of the 'no rares' today and is catching up on things" I thought.
I knew better than to knock, cause Arte'd never open it with all these customers out here.
Disappointed to not talk to the big guy, I headed to work.
On my way home, I gave him a call with my KinzPhone.
"Shhh... Head in the back and I'll let you in.." Arte whispered when he answered.
"How'd you know it was me?" I ask?
"KinzPhone has callerID, Merthyn, come on!!!"
I arrived at the store, still with customers out front.
When I knocked on the door, Ms. Birdy answered.
"Oh hi! I was umm..." I say, stumbling, since I was expecting Arte.
"Hurry, child!" she whispered, ushering me in the door.
"What are you doing here, Ms. Birdy?" I ask.
"The usual.... *sigh*.... alphabetizing.. You have no idea how disorganized a dog like Arte can get...." she mutters.
"I have an idea..." I say, laughing "How did you get roped into this?" I ask her?
"It's a VERY long story, I'll tell you one day" She says, winking "Arte's in his office, he knows you're coming, so go on ahead."
I make my way to his office and I hear...
"Hummer, hummer, golf cart, bowling alley...."
I start to get excited!!!
"Ra's Golden Bureau, hummer, bowling alley, golf cart, hummer"
I can barely contain myself, I can't wait to see all these items in one place.. I assume that Arte must be counting all of them to make sure he has enough for an upcoming sale!!
I open the door and, to my disappointment (and amusement), I see Arte covered up to his waist in paper!!!
"Arte? Ummm..." I don't know what to say.
"Yep, it's mail, Merthyn. Fan Mail, well... not really fan mail, more like 'request mail'. Everyone wants this, that and the other and are always sendin' letters so I know they want 'em!"
"Hummer, Bowling Alley, Golf Cart... They're all the same... I'd sell 'em if I could get my hands on 'em..."
Arte frowned and tossed the last letter over in a teetering-tottering pile.
"Everybody asks for those," he tells me.
He opens another letter:
"Chef's shirt. Hmm, that's gotta be Gazpacho. He's given up washing clothes, and just buys new ones."
Opens another letter:
"Elephant fountain?! I keep tellin' em, even I can't get those! Hmmm. Now here's one I could do: Master Grill."
"Look, Merthyn, I'm gonna be here all day.. Lemme add this request to tomorrow's list and let you be on your way!" he shouts.
He writes something on the list and then hands it to me.
"See ya tomorrow Arte!" I say, on my way out.. "If you ever drown under all that mail!!"
