Webkinz Rare=Wed, Oct 31st=Sorry, no rares today!
"Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggg"...my alarm goes off for 10 minutes before I can pull myself out of bed.
Arte convinced me to arrive very early and spend the day in his shop (again!) because he said he had some important last minute business to tend to.
"Why do I always let him talk me into this stuff?" I mutter to myself as I rush out the door.
MyHumvee is at the mechanic again so I have to run to get to the shop on time.
As I open the door I can hear Arte ranting and shouting.
"No, not this one, or this one, or this one....what am I going to DO??!!!"
"Arte, what are you so upset about?" I ask.
"Halloween is tomorrow and I don't have a costume! Help!" Arte is uncharacteristically frantic.
I ask the logical question. "What about a Bee? Those costumes are readily available."
Oops, definitely not the right thing to say. Arte gets reallllllyyyy mad!
"Merthyn, you know that horizontal stripes make me look fat! I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to wear the bee costume!"
"Arte, okay, okay settle down...what else have you tried?" I say as I try to limit his overreacting.
"Well, I have an old Black & White Cat costume, but that is absolutely out of the question because....well, you know the whole dogs and cats thing."
"Right, right" I reply.
"The Lion costume doesn't look good with my fur color, and the Elephant and Hippo costumes make my ears look big!" Arte shakes his head in his paws.
"Wow Arte, this is tough. Have you given any thought to being.....yourself?" I'm at a loss myself truthfully.
"Merthyn, come on, are you going to help me or not? Stop with the silly ideas."
Okay think quick Merthyn, think really quick.
"I'm serious Arte! People all over Webkinz World wish they were you, with all of your cool Curio Shop items, and your gem mines and your travels! Besides, we both know that sometimes the best thing to do is just be yourself, right?"
The old dog cracks a smile......crisis averted.
And remember to always be yourselves. Here is the list for today.
