Out of the Blue

As I thought, I did not do any grilling yesterday. I did, however, find a way to turn my prohibition from the deck into a positive, by proclaiming the area where I cook to be the sovereign state of Manstovia, where I have sole authority. This declaration proved successful, at which point I ambitiously annexed the neighboring territory of Hammock-land, which seems a natural extension of my new monarchy, and this land-grab was also successful. My eastward progression will have to end there, as Hammock-land borders on Hudson's territory, and she's guarded it far too well for nearly a dozen years now to take it away from her. But I am satisfied: I still may not be able to cook on the deck, but it's good to be the king.

I suspect that the decking was a bargaining chip: Blue foregoes settling on the contested zone in exchange for preferential treatment in trade negotiations with Blue Towers. Manstovia is a burgeoning state but lacks natural resources and is dependent on raw meat imports for its economic wellbeing!

Being King of the lawn (that YOU have to mow) is like being the prettiest waitress at Denny's

You need to convince her that you need the deck for Lebensraum.
