I still felt off-balance and a little confused, so I asked the clerk, ‘What was all that stuff about human desire? Is this it? An ice cream?’ The clerk chuckled, ‘Oh no. There is an entirely different gift shop for that. I’ve never been inside; it’s more like a bank vault. Very well secured.’
I took another scoop from the sundae, ‘And the death thing? That was all for show? A bit of theatrics?’ The smile on the clerk’s face wavered, ‘Oh no, bad things happen to good people all the time. There is another gift… ' She stopped to correct herself, ‘It’s not a gift shop, but there is another place for that.’
The clerk noticed my hands trembling again. ‘Are you OK?’ she asked. ‘No. Not really,’ I confessed. She leaned in and whispered, ‘I shouldn’t be telling you this, but there is a self-help group.’

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
