Dr. Shrunk’s First Appearance

Last night, I noticed that Tom Nook was sighing and acting strange went I went into Nookington’s. I asked him what happened, and he basically admitted that all he thinks about is money, and how to make more of it. But he said he’s okay with that, because he feels that it’s his job to show young people how hard life is! Wow.

Tom Nook: I like to think that it's my job to show you young people how hard life is!He’s trying to justify his greed, and yet the sighing indicates he feels a bit bad about it perhaps? Maybe this is the start of Tom Nook’s backstory, much like the Sable and Blathers backstories I’ve already seen? We’ll see. I’ll keep you updated.

Anyway, I donated an ankylo skull to the museum, and it completed the fossil of the ankylosaur!

The ankylosaur fossil in the museum of Animal Crossing: Wild World.The new message of the week on the bulletin board warned not to believe stereotypes. Some wrestlers hate tights! 😛

*Message of the Week* Some wrestlers hate tights. Fight stereotypes!Today, I dug up three more fossils. Two of them were returned to me, but the third one was new…dino droppings! Blathers was more than happy to hold onto the droppings, and he asked permission to keep them. Sure thing! I’m glad to dump off my finds here. That wing of the museum might need some air fresheners though, eh wot?

Blathers: Yes. Hoo. Indeed, what we have here is, quite simply, some dino droppings.While I was at the museum, I went downstairs to the Roost for a hot beverage. As I drank my coffee, I discovered that Brewster does not celebrate Valentine’s Day in Animal Crossing: Wild World. In City Folk and New Leaf, Brewster would give you hot chocolate for the holiday instead of coffee. But as far as I can tell, Wild World doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day in any way. I didn’t even get any Valentine’s letters in the mail.

When I visited Puddles, she told me she was working on a crossword puzzle.

Puddles: Right now, I am just ROCKING this crossword puzzle! I am the SMARTEST!

She asked me to help her out with a word she was stuck on, and from the list of options, I chose the word “crumble.” Apparently that was right, because she started acting very happy.

After shaking some trees (and getting stung by a bee), I was very surprised to see Dr. Shrunk walking around town! Not only because I hadn’t seen him in Wild World yet, but also because he doesn’t just walk around town like this in the other games.

The traveling therapist and part-time comedian started lecturing me on mental health and telling me I had some issues to work out. Rude.

Shrunk: All of our sessions are subject to doctor-patient confidentiality!He told me how important it is to express my feelings…before telling me to tap him.

Shrunk: Regardless, don't be shy! Go on, tap me!Once I tapped that axolotl, he taught me the shyness emotion. I can use it by tapping the appropriate icon on the keyboard window.

The shyness emotion icon on the keyboard menu in Animal Crossing: Wild World.Emotions aren’t super useful when there’s no online play, but I suppose it was nice to see Dr. Shrunk again.

At town hall, I made a 45,000 bell mortgage payment. I then continued shaking trees as I made my way back home. I got stung a couple more times, but I also found several bags of bells and a couple of furniture items: a beige box and a basic blue bed. That’s a lot of Bs. And bees.
