<TXT> I don't suppose I could convince you to consider opening an adopt-a-shark franchise.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:51:07 104714
<TXT from Naru> This feels like there will be a punch line in a moment.
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:51:24 104715
<TXT> I could offer a certain amount of stock free of charge, as long as you agreed not to sell it back to Jadeite.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:51:42 104716
<TXT from Naru> I feel that the only applicable reply here is 'I have questions', which feels like we've gone back in time.
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:51:53 104717
<TXT> Also I assure you that Jadeite has no other similarities to Anish Kapoor than "sculptor," "living human," and "please don't help him stock up on this one thing."

<TXT from Naru> Why and where do you have sharks? And what kind? And Why? Wait, I asked that already, but it feels as if it could use a repeat.

Kazuo's next text is a photo of a plushie shark wedged into familiar couch cushions.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:53:50 104721
<TXT from Naru> I did scroll back to confirm that you really did type 'shark'. ... oh thank all the gods it's a plushie.
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:54:01 104722
<TXT> Jadeite has been bored. They are everywhere. And they sing.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:54:39 104723
<TXT from Naru> When I'm bored, you guys get muffins. WE need to teach him how to bake.
<TXT from Naru> Do they sing well?
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:55:01 104724
The slight delay is undoubtedly expected.
<TXT from Kazuo> They sing ... creatively.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:55:34 104725
<TXT from Naru> I'll note that as a 'no.'
<TXT from Naru> Why shark stuffies?
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:55:55 104726
<TXT> There's an English-language children's song. When Jadeite's hand was injured, Neil convinced him to sing it as a distraction.
<TXT> He never stopped.
<TXT> I may have retaliated slightly.
<TXT> Now there are apparently shark wars.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:56:12 104727
<TXT from Naru> I feared it was That Song. My fears have been realized.
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:56:22 104728
<TXT> He managed to acquire high-quality recordings of it set to various other tunes.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:56:36 104729
<TXT from Naru> I never did peg Jadeite for evil. Hunh. My oversight.
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:56:43 104730
<TXT> I can't entirely blame him for honing his skills.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:57:01 104731
<TXT from Naru> I will not offer to sketch some sharks for you. :)
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:57:12 104732
<TXT from Kazuo> I am incapable of measuring my gratitude.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:57:30 104733
<TXT from Naru> <photo of a quick sketch of a dancing shark> Okay, I couldn't help myself. But at least there's no magic.
Kazuo Takeba 2019-04-30 23:57:52 104734
<TXT> If the next one sings ABBA, I will know who to blame.
Naru Osaka 2019-04-30 23:58:07 104735
<TXT from Naru> <adds to the sketch a disco ball, and gives the shark a pants suit> Dancing Shark!
