I'll be the first person to tell you that you should believe in fairies.
Even if I weren't obsessed with Peter Pan, I'd still tell you to do so.
Yes, I believe in fairies.
But here's a guy who is, it would seem, either making a mockery of the belief or trying to profit from it or both. Jose Maldonado, a 22-year-old bricklayer in Guadalajara claims to have a real fairy. He says: I was picking guavas and I saw a twinkling. I thought it was a firefly. I picked it up and felt that it was moving; when I looked at it I knew that it was a fairy godmother.
It died, so he put it in some formaldehyde. Now he "allows" people to take a gander at it for a fee. Seriously?
Just look at it. Like I said, I'm all for the belief, but you've got to be pretty hard up to want to see a fairy to give any sort of credence to THIS sad little piece of plastic. What a horrid way to make a few bits of cash.
Saw it twinkling, eh? Can anyone say "Glimmer of plastic coupled with working out in the sun too long"? Good! I knew you could!
Came out some time later, here's the proof
that Jose is being over-taxed
mentally and physically
Please, don't let this taint your own belief in the wee folk who populate the world... but if you want more info, the article is here.
I am a fiction writer. Mostly I compose in the Urban Fantasy genre. When asked, I usually liken it to "The Twilight Zone" - extraordinary events emerging in everyday life. I graduated with Honors in Creative Writing from Knox College in 1993. Obviously I also scribble cartoonish drawings.
Here you will find my nonfiction - the place for me to share my thoughts with you, keep you posted on upcoming events and allow me to interact.
If you wish to leave a note, use my cartoon quill and ink.
