Well, that trip to the hardware store wasn’t anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. I just kept telling myself that I was doing it for a good reason and that nobody would make fun of me for my glasses this time. It totally worked, which means I’m pretty much over my fear of hardware shops. Then again, someone did tell me that my suit of black plate armour made me look really lame, but I used my magic earrings to turn him into a frog, so I guess I got the last laugh there.
It really is easy to visit a hardware shop in the Cheltenham area when you have the power of a god with you. If someone so much as gives you a funny look, you just use your magical artefacts to completely obliterate them. Of course, when I say you, I just mean me. You don’t have any magical artefacts, so you had better watch out.
The thing is, this doesn’t just apply to hardware shops. Sure, it is nice to easily get building supplies near Cheltenham, but it’s even better to go to a bank and freeze time so that I can withdraw all the money without even having an account. I could buy a million sets of building supplies if I keep doing that.
I’ve just got to remember the real reason I made these magical earrings: to exterminate piracy from the world for all time. As long as I do that, I will have done more good in this world than bad, at the end of the day. Who cares if I go and do all this bad stuff, so long as I eradicate all the pirates from the world? People will be thanking me, no matter what I do.
I’ll make sure I don’t get carried away, though. I don’t want to become an evil overlord or anything.
