Taco Faerie

This is for Alison and Fudge, and everyone else who loves puns, fairy tales and silliness.

Once upon a time, there lived two dogs in the woods.  These were no ordinary woods; they were magical.  Deep in the woods lived an old Ent, and he watched over the woods and all who passed through his woods.  He was well-connected with the other magical creatures.  It was rumored that the Easter Bunny hopped through the clearing near the river in the summer, and when the leaves begin to fall, the elusive Taco Faerie might be seen darting along the paths, frolicking with the deer and the horses in the nearby fields.


Gretchen here.  I’ll take it from this point, Sissy.

Sissy has never sat through an entire fairy tale in her life, whether Mama was telling us the story or I was reading it to her.  At least now you know how Mama got the idea that we wanted to be a taco AND a faerie for Halloween, and we have documentation that Sissy can not only spell frolicking but she used it in a sentence.


The Taco Faerie might have stolen some cheese

Hold on…  The DIVA wants to finish her story.  Please note that I have no part in her punny fairy tale confusion!

Gretchen seems to think some of you have never heard of the Taco Faerie.   I know better!  Everyone knows that when humans put money through a neighbor’s window without getting out of the car, the Taco Faerie rewards them for their generosity and kindness with a yummy, crunchy taco and a carbonated beverage.  So of course, you know why our costumes do make sense.  Poor, overly intellectual Gg.  She can read in three languages but she’s weak on her folk lore.

Happy Howloween!  Are you dressing up?

    Well connected indeed. I take it you girls have been visiting the Blond Duck on a regular basis:)

    Sure do love those costumes. I would have loved to have you both as trick or treaters at my house. Marjie says the custom in PA is to sing to your trick or treaters. I would have:)

    Happy Howloween!

    We laughed at your story! Very funny…we hide for dress-up night. Mom says something like…we go ballistic every time someone comes to the door, so, it was lights out and mom and dad left!
