Thank you, guys, for the advice regarding the “alien” rock. I’ve been giving this a lot of thought.
Sulz suggested that I research the rock first. I haven’t had any luck there, although I’ve tried all sorts of books and the Internet.
Museditions suggested that I investigate the guy responsible a little. I’ve had more luck there. His name is Birrow Fletcha, and his hobby is buying and collecting rare and unusual items, so I guess he’s probably legit.
I decided to take you guys’ advice, and treat the offer with caution. I mailed Fletcha a picture of the rock, and he said it was exactly what he’s looking for. He offered to buy it off me, but I haven’t said yes yet. I’m thinking on it.
I can’t believe we’re so close to the end of term! We have exams in January, and I’ve hardly started my revision. I’m not even confident I learnt half this stuff in the first place, so I won’t be so much revising it as teaching myself.
On the bright side, we break up for the winter holidays on Friday, which can only be a good thing! I’m looking forward to the Christmas celebrations!
