Rocket Man

Sometimes you just have to get away from it all. I like to climb on my personal rocket and just blast away into the sky. It’s a two-seater, and a bit of a mystery to me.

I play World of Warcraft, you see, and this rocket is a recruit-a-friend reward. I sent out invitations to friends to join Wow. if any of them accept and play and then sign up for a couple months of game time, I get a reward.

And apparently this happened. A couple of weeks ago I logged in and found I had gotten a reward. I was able to pick from several, and of course I picked the rocket. It doesn’t exactly fit into the overall sword-and-sorcery theme of Warcraft, but it’s cool and you can take a friend along for the ride if you’re on a team.

The mystery is, I don’t know who the friend is who joined and got me this reward! They get a link to join their account to mine so we can summon each other and play together, but no one has contacted me. If you’re out there and you see this, please let me know! I wanted to thank you. I have wanted the rocket for a couple of years.(They discontinued it for a year or so but just recently brought it back — just in time for me to get it.)

One of the cool things about the rocket mount is that it hovers when motionless, even at ground level. This means you can park it with the motor running, or zoom along roads like riding a motorcycle.

Whoever joined so I could get this, thank you!
