Games and Treats
[At Stacie?s Scrumptious Servings shop...]
"Hey, Chloe. What can I get for you?" asked Stacie as Chloe trotted up.
"Oh the usual, thanks," replied Chloe.
"You got it," replied Stacie.
"Oh, this is my favorite show," remarked Chloe.
"You watch Try Your Pony Luck?" questioned Stacie.
"Oh yes. I love game shows. I want to take part in one someday. I?ve been into them since I first saw one as a filly," explained Chloe.
"I guess it?s the same with me. My cousin Starlight is what inspired me to run my own shop. She was so good at her job so she taught me and here I am. Of course, I?m more specific to what I sell than she is," added Stacie before handing Chloe her treat.
"I always get so into them, almost as though I?m really on the show. The more risky the game show, the more into it I get. Sometimes I?m up for hours after dark watching. I just can?t help myself," giggled Chloe.
"Well I suppose game shows have a way of keeping you awake," concluded Stacie.
"Of course, I need a snack or two to kind of keep that interest going and I?ve put on a few as a result," noted Chloe.
"Least you?re at a place that loves you regardless of your weight," assured Stacie.
"Yeah, that?s true. You really do make the best sundaes," replied Chloe.
"Thanks. Wish I could get into game shows. I?m usually either in school or working so I don?t have time to watch them all that often," answered Chloe.
"I understand that not everyone is into them so you probably wouldn?t have gotten into them even if you had time to watch a few episodes," figured Chloe.
"You?re probably right. Watching what you?re watching just doesn?t seem to attract me the way it attracts you and that?s perfectly fine," agreed Stacie.
"Unfortunately, game shows don?t really get released on DVD or anything so it?s not like you can get the whole series and watch whenever and we don?t have any way of recording shows here yet," said Chloe sadly.
"That?s probably the next step for this town. Once we?ve had a period of just cable, then Eduardo will probably add something to allow us to record shows," figured Stacie.
"For sure. Kind of interesting that neither of us have mates. I know Marie doesn?t have one either but none of the males here are attracted to us as much as whom they?re actually with," noted Chloe.
"It?ll happen eventually. Sarah got a mate yesterday," replied Stacie.
"Wow, really?" questioned Chloe.
"Yeah and they seem to be perfect matches. So far it seems like the new males that come here end up being a match for one of the females," answered Stacie.
"Even my cousin Clover doesn?t yet have a mate, nor your cousin Starlight," added Chloe.
"Although Starlight did have an attraction to Ace but Ace liked Melody, Marie?s cousin," shrugged Stacie.
"Love is funny that was isn?t it?" giggled Chloe.
"Just wish we had the same luck our friends are having," sighed Stacie.
"We should come up with our own game show," suggested Chloe.
"Like one with two teams competing for prizes? We don?t have the money for that and where would we get the prizes?" protested Stacie.
"Maybe the prize could be free merchandise from one of the places here?" added Chloe.
"Hmmm, that?s an idea. Not sure how many would want to compete though and we?d need a certain amount to have for teams," noted Stacie.
"I was thinking maybe three ponies per team. It?d be sort of like a nod to that competition I heard they had here a few years ago," continued Chloe.
"They did. The boys were judges for the event and they told me it was great event," agreed Stacie.
"We don?t have to do a game show but maybe a competition? Ms. Sheila did say she?d want to have one one day," suggested Chloe.
"That?s probably a more likely idea. We?d need to consider what events would take place though and what the rules would be so that we ensure fair play, even though we?re all fair players here," responded Stacie.
"I?ll have to get back to you on that. See ya later, Stacie," finished Chloe.
"A competition would really add some fun around here and I?m sure we could get some commentators," thought Stacie.
