The Earl of Lemongrab & the Marketplace
What a name. Then again, characters in Adventure Time mostly have incredible names.
Anyway, the inspiration for my newest journal entry (my first in what, a year? A year and a half? Two year-- no, not that long. A year and a half is about right. But in mathematical terms, 1.5 can be rounded up to 2. So... oh no what have I done to my brain) wait what. Let me start again. The inspiration for my newest journal entry is the finding and buying of my new Earl of Lemongrab companion. Now, at first, I thought 'pfft 80k that's way expensive.' Then it sold and I was left for about 5 weeks with a listing for 200k. So I was like 'awww crap'. Then, it came up for 80k again and I was like HELL YES. But here's the catch, you could bid on it for 45k. Now, if you ask me, bidding in a situation like that is downright silly. I mean seriously, if the lowest buy now price is lower than the average marketplace price, why wait to buy it? I mean, if you bid, chances are someone will just buy it outright, like I did, because it's still such a good buy at the buy now price, and you'll end up at the bottom of a vodka bottle wishing you bought it outright.
Now I've got myself thinking. What if, by buying the Earl outright, I crushed some bidder's hopes and dreams, and they've become a raging alcoholic with a hopeless plight? Okay, so that's highly unlikely, but seriously someone could have had their hopes absolutely CRUSHED by my nonmarketplacefairness. But then I remind myself 'hey look at me, I have the Earl and I've got him equipped with me hahaha.' and I feel even worse. Gaia, what have I done? Should I re-enlist him at the same price to help this poor person whose dreams were smashed into tiny fragments by yours truly?
NO. Absolutely not. The Earl of Lemongrab is MINE and MINE ONLY. I LOVE him and he is forever mine. You are unacceptable.
