Fairy Ring, Continued...Day Two
The mushrooms have expanded and flattened! The whole thing should disappear without a trace after five days, and this is day two. (Actually, it's the second day I've seen it in existence, and I could be wrong.) (hah)
Sherwood had a sensible comment on the relationship between the mushrooms' edibility and the nature of the fairies.
After Fenella from Rooks Nest said she feared the fairies would be "mean" because they constructed the ring out of poisonous mushrooms, Sherwood reminded us of the greater danger and malevolent intent behind edible materials--as in Hansel and Gretel, in which the witch's house was made out of gingerbread!!
I never thought of that. Thank you, Sherwood, for reminding us of the danger of sweets. We 'mericans have not gotten overweight eating foods that cause projectile vomiting!
