Mother’s Day Dragons
A friend’s Chippewa grandmother used to tell him stories when he was a boy. Stories and prophecies about the End Times. A time when monsters long dormant would rise up out of the earth and wreak havoc across the land. Was she being metaphoric or literal? Another great topic for the usual morning flake discussions out in the studio last week. Through a series of illogical mental steps involving crystal skulls, four corners, books read, and planet X, we managed to arrive at the conclusion that Dragons would soon be making a return.
What to do on Mother’s Day? Friends were having a party. Two and a half hour drive each way…thunderstorms expected…work tomorrow…maybe next year.
Talked to the mom, of course. She loved the Belgian chocolates and even let my dad have a few. I’m guessing he deserved it after cooking her a beautiful lobster dinner and buying her flowers. Life is good for the mom today.
About the dragons, we’ll just have to wait and see.
