Good morning, and Happy Favourite Day of the Week! Yes, it’s Friday, and yes, I’m very happy about it. For one thing, today brings me one step closer to swooning over Allan Hawco in person.
For another thing, it’s been quite a week, to say the least, and I’m happy to be leaving it behind and embarking on my weekend adventures. Since I couldn’t quite slay all of my dragons in Corporate World over the past few days, I thought I’d try again here, today:
Fairy tales are full of impossible tasks:
Gather the chin hairs of a man-eating goat,
Or cross a sulfuric lake in a leaky boat,
Select the prince from a row of identical masks,
Tiptoe up to a dragon where it basks
And snatch its bone; count dust specks, mote by mote,
Or learn the phone directory by rote.
Always it’s impossible what someone asks—
You have to fight magic with magic. You have to believe
That you have something impossible up your sleeve,
The language of snakes, perhaps, an invisible cloak,
An army of ants at your beck, or a lethal joke,
The will to do whatever must be done:
Marry a monster. Hand over your firstborn son.
– A.E. Stallings
I hope you all have wonderful, impossibly magical weekends, and I can’t wait to hear about them on Monday!
