A Grimm tale

2 Apr

Ya’ll know the Brothers Grimm and their fairy tales, right?  And you’ve heard of Rumpelstiltskin, who could spin flax into gold?

When my mom was here, I would always joke with her about the miracle-worker I was, turning her hot and sour soup or mung bean cakes or pot-stickers into milk.  Yes!  I can transform orange juice into milk!  I can even do it in my sleep!

I tried to think of a name for a person who has this super-human talent, and — what do you know? —  a name immediately came to mind.  Not one I really want to take on, though.  The name?

Rumpled-milk-skin.

Apt, perhaps.  But I think I’ll stick with Fawn.
