This is something dad taught me way back when…back when I wore bell bottom jeans and loved skateboarding, back when I had feathered hair and listened to Queen albums over and over. Oh how them’s were the days! Dad was the emperor of all things bad for you. He bought us Coca-cola in the bottle and beef jerky every weekend and probably would have been happy to take us to Mickey D’s every night if mom wasn’t around. But the best was when he made us fried cheerios and watched Saturday morning cartoons with us. Cause you know kids seriously heart fried cheerios.
I once promised a tale of food and cookery from a far off land, but words fail me when it comes to adventures of the extreme. I should have known it would be this way. The everyday meal has no place in Faerie tales. It’s always mountains of one thing, tiny grasshopper bites of another, hidden obstacles, and unforeseen gifts. Things you thought of before arriving simply vanish in the dust.
The world whispers…eat me, drink me.
