WARNING! CONTAINS INGRESS!
So I met up with a couple of my new teammates for a visit and to get some keys and low level gear, because I’m only a level 6 now and I need help.
We went to the Noodle Bowl for some tea and a visit, and to play around with the portal we could reach from our table. When we got there, I was presented with this beauty.
Other than the blue lights, it’s perfect.
In case you don’t recognize this, it is the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00X5RV14Y” locale=”CA” tag=”chathetop0f-20″]Anker Powercore 20100[/easyazon_link] that I have been trying to get you all to buy through my Amazon links, because I am poor. We’ll come back to that later.
Some teams give out buttons and keychains, but these guys went above and beyond! This is the best present a new team member could ask for, and it has secured my froggy friends a good supply of fresh eggs, so that seems like a win-win to me.
Might even give them a Torpedo Omelette Egg™((Not really a trademark, but it should be.))
That’s like a level 8 resonator for your guts.
We had a great chat and were able to get Mrs. Birdman to level 4((Yes, she switched as well, but I’ll let her tell you that story. If she wants too.)) before the local blue thugs showed up and got the party livened up.
That was actually the second time they showed up, but the first time we were eating dinner at the lookout and didn’t really feel like wasting our meager gear on a futile battle. Instead, we just sat and chuckled at the scare/stealth tactics and finished our two for $10 Whopper meals.
I’m poor, remember? That’s not why we were eating Whopper meals though. We were eating them, because we don’t get fast food very often where we live and Burger King is fairly new to town.
I keep mentioning the poorness, because apparently the blue “leader” keeps bringing up the fact that I’m laid off from work for the summer in open comms. He even stooped so low as to tell a new player that, and to mention that he is saving me some bottles and cans. You know, to help me out in my time of need.
Well, I don’t see how I could ever become that needy, being a truck driver, but I guess it makes him feel better about his own lot in life. Of all the things in this world to find joy in, another person not working seems like it should be at the bottom part of the list, but I could be wrong.
Anyhow, back to our new team of compatriots. We are both really excited about joining up with these guys. We already liked them as people, but it was hard when you can’t talk about certain things because you are always on the outside of plans and schemes. Now we are on the inside and we’re excited to get some actual recon missions going.
In a way, I’m glad that not many of the blue team ever gave me the time of day, because it made switching very easy. There were no feelings of loyalty to old friends and lots for the new one.
Plus, they are really cool people.
P.S. This is the hen that lays the torpedos. And the reason my doctor said I need to exercise and cut out the Whopper meals.
Yes, I’m calling myself portly.
She’s not as fond of me when I don’t have treats.
