[Against a backdrop of book-lined shelves-- the shelves found at Bilton & Scaggs, not the shelves in his living room, though there's a distinct similarity between the two-- Neil Perry is sitting, looking a bit sheepish.]

The bookstore did well yesterday, which I'm glad about. Really! But...

[And now, he chews at his lip.]

I think... I must have been cursed, badly.

[And he holds up a sweet potato.

In each hand.

From the large pile behind the counter, just offscreen. Not that you can see it, but from the expression on his face you might well guess.]


Can someone tell me how you're supposed to cook them? Does anyone like them? I don't really mind sharing... There are sort of a lot left over...

[And setting his sweet potatoes back on the pile, he picks up the camera to show his profits from yesterday.

Indeed, there are sort of a lot.]


I suppose, [he says from off-frame, bemused,] if you're interested, just let me know.

I was going to ask this yesterday, but I thought I'd better wait until people were back to normal-- not that I'd have minded dealing with bears and cats and whatever else, it just seemed too complicated, making arrangements mid-curse.

I work at-- I should say, I run, a small used book-store. Billy used to run it with me, but since he went home it's just been me and Todd. It's always been a bit much with just two of us, but now-- well, it seems like the perfect time to look for some help.

So, if anyone's looking for a job, and would be interested-- Bilton and Scaggs is hiring.

I've been thinking, too... as if the store's not enough... I know we've never had trouble finding a place to rehearse or hold performances, but maybe we could start a proper theater for the City Players? I mean, not just somewhere to hold the plays, but a space for storing all the props and costumes and set pieces, too.

What do you think? Is it worth putting it together?
