Leafsong’s Diary 17.5 – In which Leafsong is considering employment as an Alliance airship.

Question: What is the difference between Leafsong and the airship known as the Skybreaker?

Answer: One has a big gun.

Honestly, this is getting slightly ridiculous. I used to be the size of a figurehead on a barge. Now I am the barge itself. It takes me about ten times as long to cross the Park as it used to. I can’t even walk properly anymore. I sway gently from side to side. Like an elekk. And I have to stop every five feet to find a convenient bush, as a baby foot, or head, or whatever- seems to be constantly pressing against my bladder. It didn’t amuse my lifemate when he asked me if the potty I was constantly carrying around was for Analith, and I said NO, HUSBAND, IT IS FOR ME.

On the plus side, business has picked up quite a bit this week. I got a new contract, from some gnomish engineering business. I know! Gnomes! But I’m looking to expand into the four feet and under demographic, and the GHE can get goblin rocket fuel straight from the source. If you know what I mean.

Speaking of underhanded dealings, I almost had a heart attack when that Tylandra Starwhisper woman, in a Stormwind Guard tabard, approached me outside the GHE and said: “I know all about your illegal trade! You’re under arrest!”

I nearly had a heart attack. Luckily I was distracted by my recently-exploded attempt at soap making, and I couldn’t muster much of a response apart from a blank face and a bland comment. It was a ‘joke’ which hit a little too close to home. Really, for being in the black market trade, I’m completely spineless. My father or brothers would have reacted with the perfect amount of enraged denial. She then said that it was just a prank, and informed me that since I was married to such a joyless and humourless man, she thought I needed some more pranks in my life! Bah! I’m eight and a half months pregnant with twins, and I already have two infants under two. I have no need of pranks, my life is a JOKE.

Not really. My husband wasn’t very pleased, though, and stormed off to cause some sort of huge fuss at the Guard headquarters. When he came back, I asked what had happened, and he said that the situation had been handled. And then cackled very maniacally. See, he does have a sense of humour!

    Okay, that other comment that I just made was supposed to be for THIS entry. Oops.
