The vase itself was easy enough to acquire. I was in and out of there, didn't trip the alarms, managed to pick the right one (all these bleeding vases look the bloody same don't they?) But on the way home, the strangest thing happened, these bloody butterflies appear out of nowhere and start following me. What the f**k? I'm trying to get away from the scene of the crime and here are these fluttering little f**ks making me look as obvious as possible. Well needless to say I managed to get home and other than a few raised eyebrows and me looking like Dr Doolittle, I got away with my golden egg. The only issue now is, these bleeding butterflies won't leave me the f*ck alone, taking up residency in my house and living in the vase, next they'll be claiming squatters rights. But this pretty little painted vase will fetch me a pretty little penny and I can retire in Magaluffe with a nice villa. I just hope these bloody butterflies will have f*cked off by then.
