Yesterday, in a convenient store near my home, I felt somebody was looking at me. As soon as I turned around, I found what it was. It wasn't an "it" but "they" were looking at me from inside a steamed glass case on the register counter. There were several blue dumplings which had eyes and a mouth. I felt that it was telling me like "Hey, catch and try me!" So, I got one of them. As you might know, this is a very famous video game character called "Slime." Slime is one of the weakest monsters which attacks the player in the earlier stages of the game and is easily beaten by the player to leave hit points and gold. When I got this slime, I couldn't get any gold but I had to pay 170 yen instead. I don't know why, but I got a little bit happier when I tried it.
