Webkinz Rare = Aug 5th 4:00pm KT = Sacred Scribe Desk $3975
Man, it’s been so hot in Webkinz World lately! I wish Tabby would let me paint fences inside, but she’s afraid I’ll spill paint all over the carpet in the employment office. I never spill paint! Well, hardly ever.
Anyway, I’ve turned in my last fence for the day. (Where do all those fences go, anyway? I keep looking for them around Webkinz World. I tried asking Tabby, but she says her clients are confidential.)
On the way to the curio shop, I stop at Mrs. Birdy’s garden. She’s out watering the plants.
"Hey, Mrs. Birdy, I like your floppy sun hat and funky girl glasses!"
She beams at me. "Oh, thank you, Merthyn. Dr. Quack says I shouldn’t get too much sun, since I am a penguin, after all."
"Anything ready to harvest?" I ask hopefully. "It’s been a long time since lunch."
She sighs and shakes her head. "No, it just all needs to be watered. Merthyn, will you ask Arte to see if he can get in some sprinklers? I love my garden, but all this watering is a bit boring."
"I’ll ask him, Mrs. Birdy. You know, those carrots look ready to harvest to me."
She doesn’t seem to have heard me. "And if he can’t get a sprinkler, could he at least get some pretty watering cans? Maybe in pink?"
"Ok," I say. "Give me a call tomorrow if you need any help raking."
"Thanks, Merthyn, you’re such a dear."
I let myself into the curio shop as quietly as I can. If Arte’s still enjoying his afternoon nap, I don’t want to wake him up. He’s a real grouch about that.
I tiptoe past thinking chairs, country beds, and hockey lockers. Oh, good, Arte’s awake and at the counter...with the magic 8 ball candle in his hand!
I scurry behind a treasure chest and watch what happens next.
"Royal estate bed?" Arte looks around the store carefully, then tips the 8 ball candle over. "Not at this time.’ Ok, scratch the royal estate bed."
I knew it! The candle is a real 8 ball! No wonder Arte will never let anyone near it.
"Opus sofa?" He asks, shaking the 8 ball, then looks for the response. "‘The answer is foggy.’ Hmm. Ra’ Golden Bureau?" He shakes the ball again, muttering ‘Please say no. The customers are getting tired of that...and they’re so heavy to move!"
He checks the 8 ball. "‘Definite no.’ All right! Humvee?" When the answer to that comes up, he scowls. "Don’t know why I even bother asking about that!"
I want to listen to more, but I better not. If Arte catches me, I’ll never get back into the shop and I’ll have to spend all day painting fences.
I slip outside, then knock on the door really loudly. "Yoohoo, Merthyn calling!"
It takes Arte a minute to let me in, and when he does, I notice that the 8 ball candle is just a bit to the left of where it usually is.
Here’s the list. Now we know how Arte chooses what to put on display. I just wish the 8 ball candle would say "Absolutely" to a humvee!
