Hick was thinking of The Pony while at the auction Friday night. Unfortunately, we didn't know that, thanks to my hand-me-down Genius phone. It's been cantankerous lately. It will go all day at school, not gathering my emails. Then once I get home, there are 10 or 15 waiting. I know it's not my gmail. Because if I check it on a computer, the messages come right up at the time they were sent.
So...Friday night, in my dark basement lair, I switched from my Val email to my real email, and saw that Hick had sent me a message:
"Tell Pony 2 swords and a shield 33.00"
A picture came with it:
I'm not sure about those boxer shorts and sweatpants and chamber pot looking things in the background! But by the time I got that email on my New Delly, it still had not shown up on my phone. 30 minutes had elapsed. I hoped the bidding wasn't over.
I showed The Pony, and asked if he wanted them. He picked up my hand-me-down Genius phone and sent Hick a text:
"Pony wants tgemv"
"Pony wants what"
"He typed that. He said he wants them"
"I got them"
Yeah. Hick has his stubby finger on the pulse of The Pony when it comes to medieval memorabilia reproductions.
The Sword Shack is getting fuller every Friday.
