Big Top had his belongings all packed up in boxes tonight. He was planning on moving out of town, but I made him reconsider.
Static was sick with a cold, so I gave him some medicine. He said I was so nice to him that he regrets calling me names. 😛
It was raining in town, so that limited some of the bugs that appear. But I was still finding some good ones, and one new one: a dynastid beetle. When I went to the museum to donate it, I saw that Blathers had more dialogue once again. Wow, Wild World really does so much for character development and back stories for the non-playable characters (NPCs).
Back when Blathers was at university, he was asked by his professor to help out one day. He had to hand out exams and check for cheaters. But the room got a bit hot, so he opened up a window. That was a mistake, because a fly flew into the room!
Due to his fear of bugs, he couldn’t take his eyes off the fly. He kept grinding his beak, and that eventually gave him a cramp in his face muscles. Poor guy.
Once I had spoken with all of my villagers, I went down to the beach. Going from side to side, I kept an eye out for good fish and bugs. I caught a number of good ones, and when I was done, I was able to make a whopping 65,000 bell payment on my mortgage at town hall.
I returned to the beach to catch a few more bugs and fish, and there I caught a shark! Even though I’ve caught a hammerhead before, this was my first regular shark.
After donating it to the museum, I ended my game for the night. I’d have to say it was a pretty good night. A new bug, a new shark, a large mortgage payment, and I saved Big Top. Now I’m going to go play some Splatoon 2. 🙂
