My brothers and I recently went shopping with Alexander's kre-dit card, a magical amulet that makes people give you all sorts of marvelous things without requiring real money, such as gold or silver, in payment.
Pleistarchos got all sorts of 'sports ekwip-mint', including two pieces of wood that he can strap to his feet. He says they are called 'skees'. I told him he should get something useful, like a sword, but he never listens to me. Alexarchos disappeared for hours and emerged with odd colorful markings all over his body and metal bits pierced into his face. Claims they're 'gothic'. I've never seen an Ostrogoth with those, but perhaps Visigoths wear them.
Philippos and Pleistarchos got into shoving match over life-sized paintings of some wench named Breetnee Spear whom they both claim to be in love with. By the way, Alexander, Philippos wants to learn how to surf and suggests you conquer Hawaii next for the 'bitchin' beaches'. Iolaus ended up with so many bags of stuff for his lover, Medius, that I suggested we hire a pack-mule to haul it around, but none were to be found at the 'mall'.
Nikanor got lots of clothes, and made me try on some leather trousers. These strange garments make people whistle at me when I walk around, will never understand that. He insisted we get presents for everyone else, so we picked Alexander out a snow-globe and got Hephaistion a Chia-pet that's shaped like a cartoon character named Bart Simpson. I very much like cartoons, only decent thing this era has managed to invent.
Hephaistion, Nikanor wants you to come with him next time we use Alexander's kre-dit card. He says he's seen some scarves that complement your complexion, whatever that means.
UPDATE: Nikanor's Scooby-Doo Chia-pet won't grow. He's been heartbroken over it for a week. I offered to disembowl the shopkeeper that sold it to him, but he says that won't help.
