sells it via his home, back in his village in Gaul.

paid to anyone who falls sick after consuming my
potion once a day for one year.”

of consuming it, to the point he nearly died
(severe side effects). He seeks to claim the promised $1000 from Getafix.

that particular packet contains the Golden Ticket. With his prized possession,
