Adventures In Sensitivity
Some dialog for all you avid fans out there (I'm looking at you freshman)...
See, I was exploring a particularly scenic galaxy that erupted from the bloated stomach of an adolescent star when I came across a shiny gold chest. I went through great trials (dodging ghosts, being eaten by giant eels, fighting handicapped crabs, etc) to get this chest open so I was pretty excited. I figured it was probably a star of either the power, sling, or jump nature. The most disappointing thing would be a load of coins or polyhedrons, right?
Instead, it was a goomba. A goomba?!
Mario: "A goomba? Fuck."
Goomba: "Oh...um...hi. I, uh, found this power star."
Mario: "Oh. Did you? Um...cool. That's, uh, pretty cool."
Goomba: "Boy, this is awkward."
"Can I have it?"
Mario: "The star...can I have it?"
Goomba: "But it's my star..."
Mario: "Yeah but I'm kind of collecting them. See, I have to rescue this princess..."
Goomba: "But I found it."
Mario: "Yeah, but everyone else is just giving them to me..."
Goomba: "Well did you kill all their relatives too?"
Mario: "Did you really just go there?"
Goomba: "Well why shouldn't I? Just because your a celebrity doesn't mean you can get away with all that."
Mario "Oh fuck this."
At this point I jumped on him, he popped, and I got the star. Basically, everyone won.
