I recently heard stories of widespread starvation amongst the meeroo population, although it turns out their food supply has now been restored and that reports were in any case somewhat exaggerated.
I realised that I knew next to nothing about the operation of breedable ‘pets’ (as a non-human sentient being I find the term highly problematic), so decided to investigate. I soon located a ranch advertising breedables galore. Boxes of meeroos were displayed on tables in a rudimentary farmyard, but it was hard to make sense of the contents. ‘Petting sessions’ were advertised, but I saw no action at all. I was drowning in lag soup so decided that these new-fangled tamagotchi things would have to remain a mystery for the time being.
I headed into a nearby savannah plain inhabited by friendly grazing giraffes, and took the opportunity to ask if they were acquainted with Earl the Giraffe, with whom I shared swampland last year. Sadly I lost touch with him when the sim we squatted in was wiped; he was last heard of complaining about the dynamics in our commune and accusing the rest of us of using him as a political football.
These giraffes munched sagely on their grass as I talked of Earl, but they didn’t have much to say.
One of the ideas which emanated from the swamp was an animal Tarot, with giraffes as pentacles. So the pics above give us the 4 and 3 of Giraffes.
