The humans are celebrating…something. They didn’t start out to do it. No, they just decided that dragging Sigyn and me along and meeting up with the blue-haired goddaughter at one of the local grocery markets to pick out a variety of “fun things to eat” sounded like a good idea. Then when they got there, they discovered that some of the local populace are celebrating the moon, because it’s August. Or maybe October. Except it isn’t. It’s September.
I do not know what its going on. When I take over, I am going to straighten this whole calendar mess right the heck out.
This is a very… unusual store. Even my Allspeak isn’t up to translating all the labels. Why can’t everyone use runes like civilized peoples do?
Sigyn, there are some truly bizarre items on offer here. Do you want to try the fish meat sausage with cheese?
Me, neither. I’m just ready to go home—and come back another day with a camera, because I KNOW no one will believe me about the fish meat sausages.
Safely home! Let’s see what the humans did buy. There is quite an assortment of packages.
Ah. Stuffed bao. We have had these before and liked them!
They won’t be the same as ones brought out by a smiling waitress in a little steamer tray, but they will probably taste good.
The package says these are Lumpy…
Well, there are some crispy-looking little blisters on them as a result of delicious frying, but I wouldn’t call them lumpy. Humans are weird.
Shoe-mai? I hope they are not made of real shoes!
I’m sensing a theme here. These are all stuffed things.
The humans are fetching down the bamboo steamer, oiling up a frying pan, and heating up the oven. Twenty minutes or so from now, we should be feasting in style!
And look! There will be more stuffed things for dessert!
