How the Terrified Troll got his Courage

Day 79

There was once a terrified troll who lived in a big cave. This troll was afraid of everything especially going to sleep at night. You might think that trolls are mean and scary and not afraid of anything, but that is not true. Some trolls are nice, some people think that they are one of the reasons the phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover” was invented. Because if you have ever met a troll, and you probably never will, you would know that they are just like everyone else, and they sometimes get scared too. Well especially this troll who lived in the cave. His name was Fred. Poor Fred got so nervous that he chewed on his nails, and he shook in his big boots, and he whined, and he cried. But that was all until one day he learned a special magic trick, well it was not really a magic trick, but it was magic advice, which is like a magic trick, but different, because usually you have to be a magician or have an assistant to perform a magic trick, but when you just take magical advice from some magical creature, well you can do that anywhere, no assistance needed. Well this troll Fred received his advice from a very kind fairy, who would fly from cave to cave, around the forest and over the rainbow. This fairy had been many places and knew many things and was extremely knowledgeable on many things, because once you have been over the rainbow, you become vastly more intelligent. This fairy told Fred that in order to stop being afraid, the troll must sing a song, or think a happy thought, or when it came to getting ready for bed the troll must decide that he was the biggest baddest troll and that nothing could terrify him, because he was so strong. Well Fred thought, I do not feel strong, and I do not feel big or bad. Well the fairy said, “Do not worry Fred, you are thinking way to much about other things. In order not to be scared you must think about how strong you are, not about how strong the other things are. Imagine all the ways you are strong, and that you are in fact the biggest baddest troll. What would you do, where would you go, and if you ever feel afraid, you must just think about yourself instead” So, taking the fairies advice, Fred decided to think about himself, and he noticed that he felt better, and his feet were shaking less in his boots. He started working out too. That is how the terrified troll, became the buff troll.

The Terrible Land of Greatness

Day 78

Once upon a time there was a great big door in a great big garden. This was a very special door, because it led to a magical world where amazing things happened. For example in this magical world, the water fell upwards and all of the peoples socks were never lost. Other special things about this world were that no one ever made plain pancakes, people only ever ate chocolate chip pancakes or blueberry or pecan or something else just as interesting, but in this world nothing was boring. In fact, in this magical world, people themselves were never boring either, at least no one thought that anyone was boring. Which was in fact quite interesting. Many people who would normally have been overlooked were instead glorified, their deeds displayed in random trophy cases, and if they absolutely had nothing to put in the trophy case then of course their latest meal would serve as a great talking point in this magical world, because conveniently for the most dull of inhabitants, their last meal was undoubtedly noteworthy. Now this is important, because you must understand that hardly anyone who went through the door came back. Well of course you may be thinking that the reason for that was because once they went to this magical land of awesomeness, that they did not want to come back, and if you are thinking this, you are wrong. So wrong. So So very wrong, and you must never spread this lie about the great big door which can be found in the great big garden. No, if one steps through that door, they must be prepared to change their entire attitude, which is a very hard thing to change. Attitudes are like opinions, everyone has one. Now once you go through this door, and you really must not go through, the people in the magical would are able to immediately tell if you do not conform to their greatness, and also if you are not able to celebrate the greatness of all the other residents of the magical land. What if you were to come across someone who you have no interest in, or they in fact bored you?  Well you would not be able to act like the people from the land act, because they do not understand how not to be great, think, they think they are great, well of course they will put you in a great big jar of weirdos. All the people come to see the people in the jar of weirdos and some of the less great ones get a talking point from see the jar of weirdos. It is pretty stinky, not like it smells, but getting stuck in a jar in a magical world where everyone is eating amazing pancakes is not fun. So that is why you must never go through that door, and if you do not, you could live happily ever after.

Wormy, Rotten and Wriggly

Day 75

Once upon a time there was a very tiny cat named Alfred. Alfred was so small that hardly anyone could see him. Alfred lived on a boat with his owner who was a very nice lady who’s name was Felinia. Together Alfred and Felinia traveled all over the world. They went here and they went there. And everywhere they went Alfred saw so many things. See even though Alfred was so small and hardly anyone could see him, Alfred could see a great many things. Alfred knew that he had seen so many things that many other people and animals would never see. And Alfred had in fact see more of the great big world than the average person. Living with Felina, Alfred was almost the most lucky cat in the entire world. Felina took very good care of Alfred & he was always happy. Every night Felina read him his favorite story about the ocean. The story began “The Ocean so big and blue has sea animals both big and small. The very biggest are the whales, who tell great tales, next is the shark and then the dolphin. The smallest are the fish, the coral and the very small sea horse. But in the big blue ocean all of the animals are important, no matter their size, from the smallest seahorse to the biggest of the whales. No matter how big or how small you are there is a world of wonder for each and every one.” And Felinia would give Alfred a great big kiss and then they would fall asleep and listen to the ocean waves. And they lived happily ever after.

The Best Pizza in the World

Day 73

Once upon a time there was a very big piece of pizza. This piece of pizza was the absolute best most humongous pizza slice in the entire universe. It was kept under close watch by the pizza scientists and also by the people who wanted to eat the slice of pizza. But no one was allowed to eat the slice of pizza because it was the best slice in the entire universe. So all the people who wanted to eat the slice of pizza had to visit the slice of pizza in the pizza zoo, where the slice of pizza was kept. One day the slice of pizza disappeared and none of the pizza zoo keepers had any idea where the slice of pizza went. All the scientists were scratching their heads and all the people who wanted to eat it began arguing loudly. Each one thought that the other one had eaten the pizza slice. For almost two years there were groups of people who set about to find out what had happened to the slice of pizza. But no one was ever able to find it out. So the scientists wrote in their text books about the mysterious disappearance and the pizza zoo keeper found new jobs, and the people that wanted to eat the slice of pizza met regularly at the local pizza places to share a pizza pie and discuss what they believed to be the recipe for the slice. But it was long considered a mystery, the only person who knew what had become of the slice of pizza was the chef who created the pizza slice. He had disappeared shortly after creating the slice of pizza, most people thought that this was because he didn’t want to be harassed by the journalists who were constantly writing article about the pizza. But in actually he lived in the middle of a small town in Wisconsin, near a dairy farm, in a large house that he built before making the slice of pizza. Of course he did not tell anyone about his house in Wisconsin, but there he waited to devour his slice of pizza. He was an inventor so he created a tracking device which he attached to the pizza slice that would teleport the pizza slice to him wherever he was. So once he decided he wanted to eat pizza, he just clicked a button and there was the pizza. He ate his slice of pizza and fell asleep with a very full belly and he lived happily ever after.
