Eddie was swimming in his pool, doing his laps until he screamed when he saw Buster, sipping his drink and sitting on the edge of the pool.

"Are you wearing a speedo, Eddie?" Buster asked.

"What-- What are you--?" Eddie stammered, shocked.

"Eddie? Is everything all right?" Eddie's mom called.

"Yeah, uh, just doing my laps, Ma!" Eddie assured.

He got out of the pool, put his robe on, then he and Buster went into the pool house to eat chips and play video games.

"So, what, you live in the pool house now?" Buster asked.

"Yeah, my folks want me to be more, you know, independent, I guess. They even hooked me up with this life coach dude," Eddie answered.

"Life coach?" Buster wondered.

"Yeah. I guess he's gonna help me find my purpose in life. I thought I had one, but it turns out it wasn't the right one or something. I don't know. Anyway, he's got me on this whole schedule thing. It's, like, Mondays, take out the recycling; Tuesdays, mow the lawn; Wednesdays, go visit Nana; Thursdays, clean the pool. It's like, don't we have people to do all of this stuff?" Eddie explained.

But what caught the koala's attention was the mention of Nana.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Back up. Your nana is still alive?" Buster asked.

"Oh, yeah," Eddie nodded.

He kicked a surfboard to the side to show the picture of him, his parents and his nana. But his nana was none other than Nana Noodleman!

"Wow. And she's rich, right?" Buster wondered.

"She's loaded. But trust me, you don't want to go near my Nana. She is one mean sheep," Eddie said.

Buster smiled, knowing that Nana Noodleman was his only hope to get the prize money he needed.
