Now that I’ve got just about all of town covered in flowers, shrubs or trees, I have a golden gardening badge and a lot less gardening to do in general. I seem to have reached the limit on public works projects, too. Isabelle refuses to let me add any more! She says that if I keep on putting up more street lamps and illuminated trees, I’ll ruin Newdood’s bucolic, rustic atmosphere, and that would be bad for our tourism industry. I almost pointed out that we’ve had a total of maybe two or three tourists in Newdood, so it’s not like we’ve got an actual industry going here or anything. But then I thought – she’s in Town Hall more than I am. What if she barricaded herself in there? Then I’d never get anything built, ever again!
Since I’m practically a retiree, I have been traveling more these days. My buddy Fel recently took over the
dictatorship Mayor’s chair of Windgate, so I decided to visit. When I leave Newdood, I never travel without my golden axe, since you never know when a vicious deciduous tree will appear. Don’t underestimate trees! They could poke a branch in your eye, or trip you with a strategically placed root. A tree could run trunk first into your face without any warning! As a fellow mayor, it was my duty to help Fel tame the wild tree problem in Windgate, one swing at a time.
I think that for the most part, his basic town setup is good (he has a hamster and a deer, which is unfair). There is, however, one enormous problem in Windgate, and that problem is a hideous hippo with a
five o’clock nine o’clock 24/7 shadow named Harry.
Suddenly, Kyle the Washed Up Rocker Druggie Wolf didn’t look so bad to me. Staring into the void of Harry’s mustache-beard-horror made me feel terrible, so I went to bed and dreamed of far cuter things. It turns out that another friend of mine has a white hamster with a pink nose in his town.
It also happens that I am not the only one with certain … town habits, namely, covering everything in flowers. I take this as proof that I alone have not started the Blosso-colypse.
Bye for now,
