The day started like any other would, except there was one difference. It was my birthday. I was going to the beach that day, but because it was only about an hour away I did not have to get up at the crack of dawn. So I decided to go on Neopets. I thought best do the daily things and then I can get some np and then I can put it in the bank later.
The first thing I planned to do was my fruit machine free spin, I could not believe my luck when it had said that I had won 10,000 np and a water muffin worth about 12,000 np. I decide to sell my water muffin, to my surprise it sold within seconds. So I go to the beach with a smile on my face knowing I was 22,000 np richer.
After a great day I decide to go back on Neopets. I had, had a trade up on the site for a week and I was starting to loose hope of getting a good trade on the complete petpet lab map. When I went on neopets, somebody wanted to negotiate over the price! I ended up getting 25,000 np and a Bottled Air Faerie. Deciding I like how that trade worked out I bought all the pieces again, within moments I had a potential customer. Within ten to five minutes I had traded it for 30,000 np and a selection of make-up I was not fussed about having, but thought I could sell them later on.
To top my day off was something that came later on in the evening when I got a faerie quest. I had not had one in at least a year and thought to myself what a birthday!. After the Dark Faerie had received her toy, my pet gained some hit points and I was happy, especially since the toy only cost 140 np. Playing some more games, I came across something I could not believe! The Light Faerie was asking me to get her a Grundo Chef collectors card. I could not believe my luck, after not getting a single quest in at least a year, I was receiving two in ONE day! So acquiring the card for about 850 np I gave her it and she raised one of my pets a level, making me very happy indeed.
Looking back over that fantastic day I can only come to one conclusion for the fruit machine and the two faerie quests, and that is that Neopets was also saying happy birthday. The two successful trades are something I cannot explain and just think how those individuals were at the right place and the right time for me. It was the most memorable day on Neopets I had ever had and that it was my birthday as well made it extra special. I will tell you one thing though, no matter how busy I am on my birthday in the future I will always make time for a quick round on Neopets. – Domeneque
