This week we had the pleasure of hosting Douglas the Dragon who is visiting from Allison’s in Texas. I must say, I was a bit leery about having a real, fire breathing dragon in the house but Douglas was a wonderful guest…once he got the fire breathing bit out of his system.
He was immediately fixated with my new stove. And while the repair man was here trying to get the one burners to ignite, Douglas offered to give him a hand…
If only I had known Douglas would get that burner going I wouldn’t have called the repair man!
Once he started breathing fire he got a hankering to start a major conflagration. I told him that wouldn’t be such a good idea but that we would go practice on some old, abandoned buildings so he could get it out of his system.
As we were walking through the park he shrieked, “Holy heck, that looks like a castle! I want to burn it down!” It was actually a church and I explained that he’d surely burn in Hell if he ignited it. He insisted that I, at least, get a picture of him ‘pretend’ fire breathing so he could show it to all his dragon friends…who’d think he was exceptionally cool for igniting a castle.
Unbeknownst to me, my daughter snuck Douglas to school one day. She had a devious plan to use him to destroy the school.
Luckily, I pulled up just in time. She is now grounded. I decided to take Douglas to the Acupuncturist for a treatment. I thought he’d better get calmed down before his short journey to Trisha’s. He was a bit worried about having needles stuck into him but I assured him he wouldn’t feel a thing.
He said he really enjoyed it. He was so relaxed after his treatment I felt bad shoving him into his box and shipping him off. Have a good time with Douglas, Trisha! Don’t burn the town down!
