:I must contact the Trader's Guild, and buy a horse. Oh, is it correct that the Canadian Trader has one for sale?
>>Sassy Soothsayer warns: Do NOT trust the Canadian Trader! That one will whet your appetite & tease you with both objets d'art & objets d'utile, and then laugh in your face as the deals are suddently reneged upon! Someday I think the Canadian Trader and I will have a serious disagreement!
: Dear Mme Claire Voyant, when I said name your price, I did not expect this request. Of course, it is no problem to supply you with carpets. Unfortunately, though, I have yet to see the day that one will take to the air! This is all some unfortunate misunderstanding in the translation of Scheherazade's "1001 nights". Perhaps I can get the Dutch Trader to tell me the secret of the Flying Dutchman. Will your be still interested in the rug, anyway? Maybe, later on. we can come up with a spell...
>>My Dear Otto, I thank you so much for your concern, but in these matters, I am probably more qualified to know a magic carpet when I see one! Just because those in the trading profession have never seen one take to the air doesn't mean it can't happen. I am confident that, once I am seated on a carpet coming from the proper part of the world, I can make it soar! I have my potions and spells at the ready, and only need my Kharastan, please. If I am disappointed, I will not hold you to blame...but I feel sure I will soon be zipping around Mohicanland and viewing its citizenry from a very enlightening perspective!
Thanks ever so! I will be awaiting your Turkish carpet in payment for my services rendered. And BTW, Sassy looks stunning seated on blue or royal purple!
Yours Most Enchantingly,
