It Was a Dark and Scary Night...

Posted on October 28, 2019 by dragonspitapothecary

This post was inspired by my son’s love of reading the Captain Underpants series and the classic Peanuts Halloween TV show. It is a little different than my normal blog posts so I hope you enjoy a little light-heart fun this week of Halloween.

Chapter 1 – It Always Rains at Night

It was a dark and stormy night when a seemingly ordinary mom, living in a seemingly ordinary neighborhood realized she needed to be different. This would be scandalous she thought. What would her friends say she worried. She paced the floor listening to the rumble of thunder outside and thick heavy raindrops hitting her roof while she paced and she wondered and she worried what it all could mean.

Was this the right decision she thought?

Would it really help she pondered?

Why now she pleaded!

These questions weighed heavy on the seemingly ordinary mom as she sipped tea and cuddled deep in a thick blanket against the freight of the night. As hard as she knew it may be and what people may say she knew she had to muster the courage to take that first step and so she devised a plan that would take her ordinary life into a the unknown and much feared natural forest. She knew her family’s health depended on it. It was a mission she would have to embark if she wanted to help them.

Chapter 2 – The Talking Mirror

In the morning, fraught from another sleepless night, the ordinary mom knew it couldn’t be put off any longer because the sleepless nights would just continue and she had delayed too long already. She put on her best ordinary mom outfit of black yoga pants, comfy over sized t-shirt and fixed her hair in it’s ordinary messy bun style. She wiped on some lip gloss and glanced at her tired eyes in staring back at her in the mirror. This has to stop she knew. The once vibrant, energetic ordinary mom knew this wasn’t how it should be and she had spent one too many sleepless nights toiling over how to make it better. This had better work she sternly told herself in the mirror.

Oddly the mirror heard this ordinary mom that day and answered back, “You won’t know if you don’t try. And your lip gloss is smeared might want to fix that.”
