Webkinz Rare = October 20th 3PM = Egyptian Vanity Chair $2150
"Arte what happened to your shop?" I ask, surveying the change in decor.
"What do you mean Merthyn?" Arte inquires.
"You have this crystal ball advisor on the counter and there are giant spider webs all over the place." I say, pointing at the corners of the ceiling.
"Do you likeit? I am getting ready for the end of the month." Arte says, dodging the red eyes that appeared in the crack of the Halloween Flooring just below his feet.
"End of the month? What is at the end of the month Arte?" I ask him, looking out for those red eyes myself!
"Merthyn you must be joking right? You haven't seen the ads for the Fall Festival?" he asks me, shocked!
"Fall Festival? I think I saw an ad when I spent hours looking for the Bee Movie ads..." I say, remembering the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Stress Injury pain over the past few days.
"Yeah, later in the month, October 20-26th. I thought I would get the place decorated." he says, with a twinkle in his eye.
"The Christmas lights are a great touch Arte; really lets you see the spider webs." I say.
"Thanks that is what I was hoping for. Plus, I can just leave the lights up through Christmas!" he says, "Saves me some work!"
"But I don't understand what the crystal ball advisor is for?" I say, pointing at the ball on the counter.
"I thought I would use it versus the magic 8 ball that I always use. It is actually kind of fun to use it." he says, staring deep into the glass orb.
"How do you use it Arte?" I ask him, reaching out to touch it.
"HEY! Careful!" Arte shouts "You don't want to touch this if you don't know how to use it! Are you sure you really want to know how to use it Merthyn?"
"Yes Arte I do; I was going to buy one, but I thought it was just for decoration!" I say, excited to see some magic!
"Okay then Merthyn this is what you do: Clap your hands together, rub them together 3 times, then put them on the crystal ball." Arte says, motioning with his paw for me to do what he says.
"Sounds easy enough" I tell him, thinking of the steps exactly in order.
I rub my hands together 3 times and then place them softly on the cool glass orb.
"WHOA Arte!" I shout, staring into the glass orb, unable to look away.
"What Merthyn?" Arte asks.
"I see a number 3. Why do I see that?" I ask him, staring at a shiny number 3 that is twirling in the crystall ball.
"That's because that's the time of the rare that I am offering tomorrow... You have the gift, Merthyn!" Arte says, chuckling a bit at my amazement.
"Arte that's amazing, I'm.. I have a... the gift? I think I need to get me one of these." I say, still in awe staring at the ball.
All of a sudden, the #3 stops spinning and shrinks into the depths of the orb while the Golden Hippo Fridge appears instantly and starts spinning. I am floored.
"Arte I can see the Golden Hippo Fridge. Is that the item you'll be offering?" I ask him, unable to break my stare, but so excited I want to jump up and down!
Arte starts laughing uncontrollably.
"Well, Merthyn, that's not even close, though the theme is right!" Arte says, slapping his paw on the counter while laughing. "It looks like you need to work on your 'gift' Merthyn!"
I'm disappointed and finally take my hands off the orb.
"Well, I'll tell ya, Arte, me and all my friends at WI really want that fridge, it's always on my mind!"
"Well, ya never know when it could show up...." Arte says, with a wink.
