Just in case you are wondering, Fairy is already
considered a card-carrying, Royal member of our
Herd of Pirates, Robbers, and Ne'er-Do-Wells,
for she and CoconutPie are bringing
real "GIRL POWER" to tame the outlaws
who shamelessly snitch one another's treats,
snitch Fairy's photographs, snitch mom's salad by
getting to it before she can and dragging it away to
their secret lairs (actually the Snowflake Hut in
GuineaElfVillage) and what, you ask, is the
point of this? (Particularly you new readers
who still expect a point! Tsk! Tsk! for YOU!)
Well, mom had a very bad row with The Migraine
recently! She threw every trick in the book at
it and nothing, by which we mean NO. THING.
Which cut in on our time, ya know? Like, all the fun
things we look forward to doing aren't going to
happen by THEMSELVES, HELLO!
Yesterday, Edwin came to bring us a fresh, apple pie for
Thanksgiving since all mom ate was a few slices of
tofurkey and first she cut off the mold! Then ate the
rest...can you say EEEEEEWWWWW GROSS?
That is when we realized The Migraine had gotten the best of her.
Edwin, bored watching mom languish in her sickbed like a Hollywood diva in a tragic film, decided to march out the door
for a way-cool haircut, an entire bag of fresh, organic veggies for
us, and mom gave him the key to her P.O. Box with explicit
instructions for him to open the Box, find another key, then
go to another box with the other key and unlock THAT BOX
wherein the Miracle waited, she was sure of it!
Edwin soldiered out into the dark night and obediently did what
he was told...of course, when he found that there really WAS a
magic key in her P.O. Box a phone call ensued:
"Chana, there's a KEY in your box! What do you want me to do with it?" He did not know because he is such a good listener!
"I already told you, take the key that is in the box you opened with the other key to another box and open THAT box with the new key and see if there is a MIRACLE IN IT AND THEN BRING
IT HOME TO US IMMEDIATELY!"
"I just TOLD YOU WHAT!"
"What other box?"
"The lockers where they put the packages!"
"Where are they?"
"To your right as you leave the lobby."
"But there's a number on the key...what do I do with THAT?"
"Use they Key to open the Box with THAT NUMBER!"
"Where is it?"
"Where is what?"
"The door to the box opened and a package is inside.
What am I supposed to do with it?"
"Is it from Great Britain?"
"Uh...well...there's a crown, and lots of stickers...and...
"THAT'S IT! PLEASE BRING IT, DON'T LET IT GET WET."
"What am I supposed to do with the key?"
"It will automatically stick in when you close the door."
"Really? How's that work?"
"Please stop talking, cover the package so it doesn't get wet, and bring it back as soon as possible. We have been waiting and are so excited, just hurry and don't let it get wet! Thanks."
"What do I do with the - "
So, Edwin brought the Magic Package. It was a surprise from Fairy!
It was supposed to bring Fairy Magic...but...would it,
would it really?"
Stay tuned for: "As The Key Turns" to be continued...
(P.S. no headache today...just sayin')
