Mageweave bandage, stat!

I was out for the booze with my mate Paul last night. Paul is head nurse at a cardiac ward, and takes my regular 'I know!, that's exactly what it's like at writers' meetings!' interjections with good heart.

ME: I've been waiting for these phone calls, so I've spent the last three days playing Warcraft, doing loops round Darkshire looking for silver ore.

PAUL: You twat.

ME: (humbly) Yes.

PAUL: You want to go to the Badlands, near the ogre mounds.


Three pints later:

ME: ... so Tmara, the dwarf paladin, does all the mining in the harder levels, and sends back the ore to Zing, my drenai paladin, so she can use it for jewelcrafting. I'm like a one-woman guild.

PAUL: What?

ME: I said I'm like a one-man guild.

PAUL: Oh.
