Some Excuses [5 Thory 4261]
Ghirbis: Noodles and Beans
Me:"Why so many different noodle and bean dishes, Ghirbis?"
Ghirbis:"Dustweed told me to do it!"
Dustweed: Noodles and Beans
Me:"Dustweed? Why did you tell Ghirbis to make all noodle and bean dishes for the big dinner?"
Dustweed:"I didn't tell her that."
Me:"Well, she said you did."
Dustweed:"She asked me what I suggested she make. She had a book of guntry recipes in her hand, and I was afraid she'd only make a meat thing. I told her that a noodle-and-bean soup would be easy to do, and everyone could eat it."
Dustweed:"She went a bit berserk with it."
Me:"Just a touch."
Dustweed:"At least I was able to eat one of the dishes."
Dustweed:"Most of them had meat in them. I wasn't expecting her to use so much meat."
Me:"Still, you shouldn't tell her things like that. It only encourages her."
Dustweed:"I didn't know she was an Orren! She looks just like a Rassimel to me!"
Me:"To almost everyone, it seems. I must accept that excuse."
Me:"Agrimony? What are you doing in my closet? I mean, my quite fancy bedroom suite?"
Agrimony:"Oh! Hi, Sythyry."
Me:"A pleasure meeting you here today! An unexpected pleasure!"
Me:"Very unexpected indeed!"
Agrimony:"Not so unexpected. We do live together now."
Me:"Well, in some sense of 'together'. I did think that you were living in the Slotted Hexagonal Mineshaft, on the second floor. Or was it the Chamber of Unspecified Delights?"
Agrimony:"I believe Ghirbis called it that, Sythyry."
Me:"In particular, you are not living in the Carcanofex Suite."
Agrimony:"I should hope not! I am not a carcanofex."
Me:"Well, then, what are you doing in the Carcanofex Suite?"
Agrimony:"This is the Carcanofex Suite, then?"
Me:"It has been thuswise named! Observe the stuffed carcanofex toy in the glorious chamber you are currently infiltrating!"
Me:"Well, what are you doing here?"
Me:"Why are you chasing Pazi-Pazi in my bedroom?"
Agrimony:"Because that is where she ran."
Me:"What was she running from?"
Agrimony:"I tripped over her. I saw blood afterwards. I want to make sure she is not hurt."
Me:"Hah! I daresay the blood is from an innocent Zi Ri she has killed."
We collected and inspected Pazi-Pazi. The blood was from her last meal. Evidently Sneaky Veffu has followed us here. And my roommate's suspicious activities had an excuse.
