Earthbound – Day 44

–Day 44–

You know, this whole time we’ve been trying to save the world, but we haven’t had any time to just relax and enjoy the scenery. So today we’re going to take in the sites a bit before anything else. The camera man knows what we’re talking about, he’s right there in front of the hotel ready to take our picture and start the day off right.

He almost seems to follow us around today. While we were down on the beach he showed up to capture the moment. Then again when we went to the restaurant for some lunch he showed up. Although this time he did kind of drop down from the ceiling into some little old ladies food…

After this we go on a nice shopping spree. Nice and expensive that is, can you believe these prices? $1198 for a Chef’s Fry Pan? $3080 for a Big League Bat? $9998 for a diamond band?!?!?! We end up spending nearly our entire life savings equipping everyone with the latest and greatest gear available to us.

Later we head over to the museum which has a very Egyptian style exhibit on display. I’m guessing these are supposed to be Scarabian artifacts. There’s Rum Raisin the third’s casket, Rum Raisin the fourth’s casket, and even Rum Raisin the fifth’s training pot. Wait a minute, his training pot? Why would they have that on display?

The other museum guests also give us some things to think about. The one surfer dude states a chubby kid was just here, he looked very wealthy and was being extravagant. No doubt that was Porky, since he must have arrived some time before me.

The other guy must also be some kind of researcher, because Mr. Spoon from the Fourside museum is trying to call him for some reason. Mysteriously, he doesn’t seem to want to answer the call for some reason. Even more curious, there was a mysterious musical cue that played after talking to him. What does it all mean?

Sadly, there are no answers to be found at the moment, so we slip over to our final destination for the day, the Stoic Club. Of course we had to call in advance, which is kind of weird, but the atmosphere and clientele inside are even weirder. For starters, take a look at the stage show. It’s just a rock. Everyone just stares at the stone and Philosophizes.

We try talking to this one guy by the stage, but he is talking about god only knows. He’s using big words that I’m not familiar with and whatever he said just seems like gibberish. Then some other guy is talking about wanting some magic cake, which only the lady on the right can make. It’s just weird.

Even the employees don’t seem to get it. The Mr. T looking fellow walking around seems to run the place and he doesn’t understand the thing these people are talking about. But they’re all willing to pay a lot of money for ordinary water, so as long as it’s good for business he puts up with their nonsense.

With that, our day of relaxation comes to an end. It’s time to head back to the hotel and rest up, because tomorrow we plan to sail across the sea. If rumors are true, and they always are, that also means we’ll be facing the Kraken tomorrow. So join us then as we battle the monster of the deep!
