My neighbor, the one who just moved in on Saturday, IMed me when I was in Numbakulla with a fellow I'd met through Enjah. He - my neighbor - asked me if I had a minute to assist him. I said yes, having hastily explained to my companion, then Alsoran TPed me to his house and he asked me to help him test his new hat, which makes the wearer follow anyone nearby. He said he feared there was no demand for such a hat, however, I said that wasn't the point. I thought the idea was hilarious. He wore it and I flew madly about. He followed, jerked hither and yon by his headgear. I told him I wanted him to sell his hat in my and Enjah's hat shop. We went off to Grignano, and he said he'd have to build a CAGE for the hats as they flutter about like birds, and would take off and be seen no more. While we were discussing the hat cage a person came in (noob wanting attention) with something odd on his head that I declined to zoom in on (so I can't say what it was). When the noob went next door Alsoran said, "He was weird." I agreed. I told Alcoran he is a genius and I am glad he's my neighbor, and he replied (wryly? sincerely?) "The gods have smiled upon us." Then he either crashed and turned up somewhere else, or teleported away - who knows? I love the idea of a cage full of hats - with prim limits we might be reduced to one feral cap, however, that will be good enough I'm sure.
