In an effort to give myself a shortcut across my mine, I started digging a tunnel to connect two outlying areas.
The result: I came across an area I previously dug out but never marked as finished, and that’s because it wasn’t finished. I’d left a huge granite deposit in it. I don’t remember why I abandoned it — sometimes all the tunnels start to look alike — but there’s enough granite in it for me to retire.
Which is why I’m now digging it out so I can mark that mine empty.
And then I’ll go back to my shortcut.
Which means I’m hauling granite around the long way every day because I am an idiot.
ps. I ran out of coal sticks, so no sketch today. Will make more tomorrow. Too tired tonight.
