Fairy Tales

Okay, I am aware that I am a grown up.

But isn’t the idea of something magical just kind nice? When do we decide that we’re too cool to smile at a big lollipop, or for spinning around in an a-line dress, or even just eating a really good cookie with a chilled glass of milk. I think that we all deserve a chance to enjoy something for no particular reason, or with no explanation.

And no one should make you feel weird for it.

Today I saw my coworker had this game and the name of his city in the game was “Etopia.” What a serious name! It’s a city you are playing with in a game… it can be named anything!!!

He told me, “I’m sorry its not Pegasus-rainbow-flower-anthia.”

Now this could have been not nice, in fact it is a kinda a backhanded compliment.

But this comment only made me happy… I mean isn’t it good that he thinks of flowers and rainbows and fictional flying creatures in association with me. Anyways, quickly–I will add here that I still don’t like knowing how magic tricks are done… and try to forget about “reality” when I see them. I mean, if it’s a fantasy why not just get caught up in it?

And now onto the sketchy part… simply I dedicate this drawing to all the people I know (in real and online) who make me happy. Regardless of any bad times, when I’m really in Β a happy moment:

And I thank you so so much for it!

  1. I’m not too cool to smile at those things.
    My shipment of goods from my last apt. arrived from overseas last night – I found my favourite summer dress tried it on and twirled in because it was fun and just that kind of dress, then later I ate Jello pudding.
    Anyone that names their game-city ‘Utopia’ is unhappy, very unfulfilled, frustrated and wishing for perfection they KNOW they are never gonna get and can’t be happy in the real world. Thus the snarky comment. Plus he probably stopped eating Jello pudding and enjoying lollypops. (Thank you Dr. Freud). ;) xox

    1. You are most certainly the coolest. Sometimes it just feels right to be silly and light!
      And sadly your analysis of this guy is dead on. He seems nearly dead inside a lot of the time.
      I hope he finds happiness someday… I just think at this point he may not even recognize it.
