"Thump, thump, thump, crash…", sound of Richmond running for the phone and dropping it in his excitement.

"Crinkle crinkle crinkle, hmmm...", sound of him looking up "Oregone" on a map.

Hey it's winter, a guys gotta eat! Maybe we can team up on it RH. $25 each. Of course we have to provide supplies like tape and paper, so it looks like we might make $1 each. Minus overhead.

It would be fun to go thrash the house though.

"Oops, I kicked over your paint can"
Walk all over with a painted shoe.
