Well.

There's Hot Dog On A Stick On A Stick.

Permalink

- y'know what, good enough. And she's kind of curious about what that even means.

Permalink

What it means is this:

You take a hot dog.

You stick a stick into it, at a ninety-degree angle.

You take another stick, and stick it through at a forty-five degree angle, so that it intersects both the hot dog and the first stick, in a triangular sort of shape.

Then you grill it. And offer it for sale at "FIFTY PERCENT OFF NOTHING!!"

Permalink

...well, y'know what, it's still a hotdog. This is a pointless but apparently harmless process.

"Two hotdogs, please."

Permalink

Two hot dogs! (With four accompanying sticks!)

Permalink

"Thank you! So! How did you come to open up this store?"

Permalink

"It was waiting for me when I arrived! I always dreamed of running one of those stores that sell things on sticks, you know. I never thought I'd be so lucky as to run one that sold things on sticks on sticks."

Permalink

"That sounds absolutely delightful! I'm so glad you get to have it. I was thinking about opening up a shop myself, I'd noticed there weren't any bookstores."

Permalink

"...oh. Well. I ... suppose you can do that?"

Permalink

"Do you think it'll be a problem?"

Permalink

"No! No, I'm sure it'll be fine that you want to do that. Even if Michael didn't give you one at the beginning. He probably just forgot. You should go for it!"

Permalink

"All right then! Thanks! I can't imagine we're supposed to go all of eternity without trying any new things. Thanks again for the hot dogs!"

Permalink

"You're welcome. Good luck!!!!"

Permalink

"Thanks!"

She reports back to Jean. "Seems like most of the stores were already here when people got here. We'll have to talk to Michael. D'you want a hot dog or do you have dietary restrictions? Or just not like hot dogs, that would also be fine."

Permalink

"I like hot dogs!" He accepts one, considers it somewhat skeptically, attempts to figure out a moderately well-mannered way to eat it without stabbing himself in the mouth.

Permalink

She just pulls hers off the sticks. "They're a little ridiculous. But they make the guy who runs the store really happy, so that's all right."

Permalink

Oh that's allowed? Good. He follows suit. "You're very sweet, you know that?"

Permalink

" - aww. Thanks. I try."

Permalink

"You succeed! It's terribly charming."

Permalink

"Well, I'm glad you think so, anyway. It'd be a pretty questionable state of affairs if you'd gotten a soulmate you couldn't stand."

Not soulmates not soulmates not soulmates ugh it seemed like the thing to say she is just going to make this pointlessly harder for him later -

Permalink

"That would be terrible. I feel for my poor counterfactual self."

Permalink

"Yep! Poor guy. Hopefully whoever's in charge of his counterfactual unreality notices this and corrects it for him."

Permalink

"Oh, I don't know. He probably finds doomed pining very appealingly tragic."

Permalink

"Well, as long as he's enjoying himself. And as long as you are. You're probably the most important one of yourself, as the one that really exists."

Permalink

"Conveniently, I am also the luckiest one of myself." He beams at her.
