The Woolen Unicorn

Last Saturday, we arrived home late from a lovely visit with Ms. Treva and her handmade trees and a necessary trip through the Axis of Evil (aka Walmart). After hiking through a snow-covered pasture and along a creek bed earlier, it was necessary to remove my woods-tromping britches and boots and pull on some appropriate about-the-house loungewear.

As I shed said layers, The Diane turned ’round and espied my awesome purple base-layer paired with my most favorite wool sweater and immediately began giggling.

“What?” I asked.

“Hahaha, that looks like some sort of superhero outfit! Hahahaha!” she replied.

The ensuing twenty minutes resulted in over a dozen blurry images; due to Diane’s uncontrollable fits of giggling. At long last, and at the expense of my dignity, I present to you all… The Woolen Unicorn: Champion of the Underdog, Enemy of Corporate Greed and Political Ineptitude. Capable of sparking cooking fires with a single match, dressing out a deer without powertools, and scootering over any obstacle!

A new superhero for our times: the Woolen Unicorn!

A new superhero for our times: the Woolen Unicorn!

Just…ask.

Just…ask.

The world needs more people with this frame of mind–not just artists and musicians, but more PEOPLE.

Huh, mebbe we should make our elected officials couch-surf and ASK for their paychecks, no?
