♕ |[107]| Roots ripe as old bait

[ Video ] 

[Against a backdrop of book-lined shelves-- the shelves found at Bilton & Scaggs, not the shelves in his living room, though there's a distinct similarity between the two-- Neil Perry is sitting, looking a bit sheepish.] 

The bookstore did well yesterday, which I'm glad about.  Really! But... 

[And now, he chews at his lip.] 

I think... I must have been cursed, badly. 

[And he holds up a sweet potato. 

In each hand.  

From the large pile behind the counter, just offscreen. Not that you can see it, but from the expression on his face you might well guess.]
 

Can someone tell me how you're supposed to cook them?  Does anyone like them?  I don't really mind sharing... There are sort of a lot left over... 

[And setting his sweet potatoes back on the pile, he picks up the camera to show his profits from yesterday. 

Indeed, there are sort of a lot.]
 

I suppose, [he says from off-frame, bemused,] if you're interested, just let me know.

[ He's trying not to laugh. Clearly. ]

Neil, you're rich!

I guess we should probably eat them.

Maybe we need to have a banquet.

You could accept payment in other foods today, if you want to balance it out.

[ no help at all ]

Well, you'd have to change what you accept, of course.

Maybe use the sweet potatoes as change.

[ He's bothering you, have you not noticed? ]

Well, they're not really standard, are they? I think you'll have to do it by weight.

What are these things called?

[They are not native to Russia, okay.]
candothat: made by me (A good officer)

[personal profile] candothat 2013-11-16 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, okay. Do you know how to prepare them to eat?
candothat: made by me (Cadet: Patient)

[personal profile] candothat 2013-11-16 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
The same as regular potatoes?

I hope that you will find something to do with yours.
candothat: made by me (-_-)

[personal profile] candothat 2013-11-16 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
Potatoes, I know. I can try that.

Ah, no. I have my own.

Should I ask how many of those you have, or is 'a lot' a pretty good estimate? Because, I mean, I like them okay, but I have no idea what you're supposed to do with, you know, 'a lot' of them.

[personal profile] just_displaced 2013-11-15 02:45 pm (UTC)(link)
I think they last for awhile. I don't know a whole lot about cooking, but they're basically like regular potatoes, right? Unless they're some kind of weird, cursed yams. Which is definitely possible.
just_displaced: (staring at the table)

[personal profile] just_displaced 2013-11-15 03:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Then I guess you're probably stuck with a whole bunch of yams. Or sweet potatoes. Or are those the exact same thing with different names? I've never known if they were different or not.
just_displaced: (eager)

[personal profile] just_displaced 2013-11-15 05:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe you should just start giving away free ones every time someone buys a book. That'd get rid of some of them. Make it some kind of promotion: Free sweet potatoes with every novel purchased, or a way more interesting slogan that I can't come up with right now.
