Me & My Muse – Day 501: Fairy, Fairy, Quite Contrary

I have been tricked.  When I opened up the Book of Fairies,  Everything in the book was written in a language that I couldn’t understand.  How can I read this book if it’s not written in English?


Muse:  What’s wrong?

I think you know what’s wrong.  I can’t read this book.

Muse:  You can’t read it?  Aww, that’s too bad…

It’s written in sparkling runes that I can’t decipher.  What’s the meaning of this?

Muse:  Oh.  I forgot to tell you.  Fairies like playing tricks on people.  I just couldn’t resist.  It’s so much fun!

So you grant my wish by giving me a book that I can’t understand?  What language is this?

Muse:  Why it’s the ancient fairy language, of course!  All fairies know it.  It’s high fairy, the tongue of my ancestors.  We all use the common fairy tongue, nowadays…

Wait!  Your ancestors?  But you’re a Muse!  You are not related to the fairies at all!

Muse:  I beg to differ.  Although I was adopted, the fairy magic helps me to remember all of the memories commonly shared by me and all other fairies.  I’m just as much of a sister to them as they are to me.

Well, you tricked me once.  This time, it won’t happen again.  Here is my next wish.  I wish that you could completely translate the entire book into English, permanently!

Muse:  Permanently?  Darn!  So much For tricking you again.  Very well.  Here is your wish for the day.  Tee hee…

There.  Now it’s in English.  And yes. Permanently.  I knew that you might pull something like translating the book and translating it back so that you can have my wish granted.  And I said completely so that it’s not partially done, and to ensure that all the meanings are retained.

Muse:  There.  That’s your wish.  Your next one is tomorrow!

But can’t I earn wishes too?

Muse:  You can.  And it involves granting special favors that I ask of you.

Favors like?

Muse:  Any act of kindness.  It can be something very nice that you say or something nice that you do.  Things like that.  Does that sound good?

It surely does.  Do you want to see a movie with me tonight?

Muse:  Certainly!  Now that grants you another wish!  What movie are we seeing?

Dumb and Dumber To.

Muse:  Two?

No.  To.  Like going to and from.

Muse:  Oh.  Because the movie is about dumb people?  I don’t even think I saw the first one.

Yes you did.  Something’s wrong.

Muse:  What do you mean?

My Muse saw that movie.  But you, the fairy, whoever you are, did not.  So where is she?

Muse:  Your Muse?  I’m right here!

That’s her body alright.  Very small, but you’re not my Muse.  What have you done with her?

Muse:  Nothing!  I’m your Muse! Just ask me the most personal question and I’ll answer it!  Don’t you trust me?

Okay.  Explain to me the last time that something embarrassing happened to you.

Muse:  It was when I was shy.  I had an embarrassing accident that I rather not talk about at length, okay?

Fair enough.  Anyway, what is that pendant hanging around your neck?

Muse:  Do you like it?  It’s a brand new piece of jewelry.  It’s very stylish and it pulls my look together.  wouldn’t you say?

Certainly.  Now, why can’t you remember Dumb and Dumber?

Muse:  It’s been so long since I saw it!

But you just told me that you didn’t see the first one.  Which is it?

Muse:  I saw it!  I just wanted to play “dumb”. Get it?  Tee hee!

That’s actually kind of funny.  See you at the movie tonight!

Muse:  See you there!  Remember, because you invited me to the movie, you get an extra wish!  I’ll see you later!


There’s something fishy about her.  I know it.  I don’t want to second guess myself yet, but she’s definitely acting different.  And it might have to do with the pendant she’s wearing.  I better read that book of fairies, and now.

Today’s high is going to be 27 degrees and the silver lining is seeing a movie tonight.

To those of you who like going to the movies, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Whew!  That was close!  He almost found out!  Those memories surely come in handy.  As long they remain in the pendant, I can be a fairy forever!  Even if they escape, I can gather them back.  She can’t regain her consciousness!  She can’t!  I won’t let her!  And whatever I do, I can’t let Kyle find out about the truth.  Now about that movie tonight.  Tee hee…
