Putting the Drag in Dragon

T-- got a Christmas gift from his friend. It was one of those fizzy egg things that dissolved to reveal a little toy dragon. T-- was so excited! We got the warm water ready in a bowl and dropped the egg in. The fizzing brought excitement (on T--'s part) but also added the smell of cheap soap to the air. Ugh.

Eventually, the dragon was revealed. I rinsed off the nasty soap stuff and started putting the wings and tail on. As I looked at the dragon legs, I said, "Wait a minute. They put a back leg on as a front leg. This can't possibly be right!"


Then I took another look. And another. And I suddenly realized that I was holding Puff the effeminate dragon. Yes, our dragon was a drag queen.



Awesome.

Kengo: Your comment had me on the floor! *snap* You rock. (And when are you going to do your spouse tag thing?)

Katie: You said it. Did B-- get one too?

Oh. my! The post was hilarious and that first comment made it even sweeter.

Thank you for letting me be related to you.

For the record, the *snap* above was a z-snap.

And the spouse-tag-thing? Sorry...I may be bald, but I'm still genetically blond.

Maybe it was an attempt at "I'm ferociously about to claw your eyeballs out"???

Gerb: You're welcome! I'm glad you chose to be related to me, too. :)

Kengo: Thank you for the clarification. I had no idea what a z-snap was until I checked your link. And that makes it even funnier.

EW: Or ferociously claw your hair into a bouffant...

QS: Yeah, I thought so too. Can I get you a tissue?
