She takes a tiki tour around your room to suss it out and repeatedly says “Chur”. You take your time because you don’t want the display to look rough as guts. Just when you think you’re home and hosed, you find 4 more speech bubbles that were hiding under your planning book. Aw, gutted. You’re about to throw a wobbly but you remind yourself that everything is a box of fluffies. You don’t want the display to look half pie so you give it heaps. It looks wicked bro.
