What's So Obvious About That?
Flaregun Meshgear went to the carnival. He played the games, went on the rides, and watched the fire eater and acrobat perform. Near the end of the day one of the carneys approached him. I really like the creatures stuck on your back, she said to Flaregun. How much would you want for them? The creatures are my friends, said Flaregun, they’re not for sale. You didn’t even know you had them, said the carney, until I told you about them. Flaregun pulled off one of the parasites and handed it to her. Free sample, he said, and walked away.
