I noticed yesterday that I was coming up on my thousandth post. I wasn’t sure if I should mark it in any way. I’ve never mentioned twitter follower milestones or blogging anniversaries. But one thousand posts for something that I started on a whim seemed… noteworthy. I asked my kids what I should write to mark the occasion, and Fiona came to my rescue.
Fiona’s been uncharacteristically shy about putting her drawings on my site, so I was very surprised when she said that I could use her fairy tale. She wrote it last week, and if you follow me on twitter you might remember me noting her hilarious misspelling of “where” as “whore.” The whole thing was charming, and I begged her to let me use it online at the time, but she said no. I did convince her to let me scan it in, but she practically made me take a blood oath that I wouldn’t use it without her permission. I now have that permission.
It should be noted that she did this one evening simply because her teacher hadn’t given her any homework, so she gave herself some. Her picture and story output would put Stephen King to shame (and the gore in this one rivals King as well). She has notebooks filled with her stories and songs. I have boxes full of her drawings. She never stops.
So, here you go. For my 1,000th post, Fiona’s fairy tale. I’ve “translated” her spelling and handwriting. The pictures are sublime.
