The Test of Our Descent Vehicle is Aborted Due to a Runaway Giraffe
Written 11 October, 2012
After weeks of building and scripting I was ready for a trial run of my descent vehicle. I invited Sweetie and a friend and we headed out over Whimsy Kaboom, looking for a flat spot on the ocean floor to begin our adventure.
Then we saw it-- it being a runaway giraffe. Leaf Shermer had been conducting illegal breeding experiments on nearby Whimsical Mischief and it had wandered away from her Island of Dr. Shermereau. Now it was cavorting between two of Kaboom's small islands, where it could create all sorts of mischief-- scaring newbies, making big giraffe poops, and maybe even making baby mutant giraffettes.
There was only one choice. I had to pull the plug.
And so we took our still-untried vehicle back to its dock. The test flight would have to wait for another day.
