While be-bopping along the Esplanade, you come across a hobo swaddled in a huge scarf and busily stirring an enormous pot. It's not suspended over a fire, though -- it's suspended over a big pile of ice cubes.
"Hey, err... whatcha makin'?" you ask.
"Soup. Good soup. Nice and cold. Want some? 5 nickels."
|Buy some soup (5 nickels)|
- With 5 hobo nickels:
You hand over the nickels and take a bowl of the cold, cold soup.
|You acquire an item: bowl of fishysoisse|
- Without 5 hobo nickels:
You can't afford a bowl of soup.
|I’ll have the salad. I mean, I’ll leave.|
The prospect of consuming frigid soup leaves you... underwhelmed. So you leave.
