Woe for Real-Eel, cont. [15 Chirreb 4261]
So, of course, I introduced Real-Eel to Vae.
Me:"Vae, this is Real-Eel, who is a friend of mine from ... from ... "
Me:"Right, Havune. Real-Eel, this exceedingly dangerous pig is Vae -- that's Vaisessasilmin, the nendrai."
Real-Eel:"How do you do?"
Vae:"It's the tailtouch, mainly, though it's clawing and biting I'll do for the little things, and for practice, like. How do you do?"
Real-Eel:"Um ... what?"
Me:"Tell her how you terrorize cities and perform horrible wickednesses on great prime heroes!"
Real-Eel:"Oh -- I do that with my cooking. My piffish noodles, especially."
Vae:"What are piffish noodles?"
Me:"What are piffish noodles?"
Real-Eel:"Round noodles, cooked with powdered fish and powdered chilis and powdered sugar and powdered biscuits and powdered cumin and powdered mushrooms and powdered spice cookies and powdered apples."
Me:"That sounds very dangerous. Why do you make it?"
Real-Eel:"The first time? Everything powdered that I had in the pantry, on noodles. It was good! Sort of! So now I make it now and again."
Vae said nothing, but looked very confused and a bit hurt.
Vae:"Just the wish on me for things I can't have."
Real-Eel:"Well, I can make you some, if you'd like."
Vae:"That'd be a kindness and a half!"
