Michael’s challenge this week:
This week as we continue on in our self-isolating, stay at home, consider the plight of the fairies living in or around your place.
You know where they are, in the garden, under the bed, in the kitchen cupboards but they are sure to be living happily somewhere around your place.
Write a story/fairytale in which you explore how they are reacting/coping with their human ‘friends’ being home all the time.
Have you heard?
Lockdown for another three weeks.
Damn. We won’t be able to go anywhere.
Exactly. What are we going to do?
Stay out of their way, that’s what.
But what are we going to eat?
There’s bound to be something in the cupboards.
There used to be, but not much now.
What? No biscuits?
Apparently flour and eggs are in short supply.
What about rice and pasta.
Oh yeah, got loads of that, but nothing to go with it.
What about tins?
Yep, got loads of those, but have you tried opening one with those ring pull thingies? Way too hard for our minute muscles. Even Fairzilla can’t get to grips with that.
Guess we’ll have to forage then.
Forage. You know, what we used to do before we got used to modern living, food on tap, central heated nooks and crannies.
But I hate foraging!
Yeah, well so do I, but I wanna eat. You coming?
