How Do You Drive This Thing?


Tea Rat: HOLD ON TIGHT RATTUS! We are descending back down in the Valley of Nowhere. Was that NOT  a splendid flight to the moon?

Rattus: Tea dear fellow, do you HAVE to swoop down so quickly and rise so sharply? How do you drive this thing?


Tea Rat: On FAITH old man, ON FAITH!

Rattus: You mean to tell me you have NO IDEA HOW TO MANIPULATE THIS FAIRY? HOW DO I  LET YOU TALK ME INTO THESE THINGS?

Tea Rat: HOLD ON OLD THING, we are about to............

.......And that dear my dear children, is how Tea Rat and Rattus went to the moon and back......


The End

Rattus: And, DEAR CHILDREN, let this be a lesson to you. Never let a rat who has no license to drive a fairy, has no idea how to get where he's going, how to get back, or how to land a fairy, take you to the moon.

Tea Rat: AND, dear children, remember that some rats -- who shall remain nameless -- are simply afraid of flying, and if left to them would never leave the confines of their cozy cottage rooms. Remember too, that another rat -- who SHALL remain named, namely me, Tea Rat, myself -- DID apply for his license at Nowhere's Institution of Motor Cars and Moonflights and Planes.

Rattus: And, remember DEAR CHILDREN, that the acronym for Nowhere's Institution of Motor Cars and Moonflights and Planes is NIMCMP, or nimcompoop for short. And that applying for a license is not the same as attaining one.

From generation to generation there are wild tales of rats trying to manipulate fairies and they often end up back in Nowhere!

I hear a bear is going to the moon too? So is Gretta and Pippit, coming to Nowhere soon...Bears first!

Hey y'all!

Bebe, I shall scoop you up, just put on your goggles for we shall go at high speed.

Mozes, yes sir, I DID FORGET THE FAIRY DUST! Don't forget as well THE INCREDIBLE MISS M.! We should have enough room since RATTUS is a SCAREDY CAT and cannot bear heights!!!

COME ON EVERYONE!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

I am waiting below with my goggles. I will hold onto Miss Moussie and we shall fly away together... Ready, set and away we will go... See you below Tea Rat!!

I'm tryin' to figure out how to hitch a wagon to the tail end of this circus! Wow, what a ride this will be! All I could find in my old back pack was some sawdust..somehow I think that's just not quite right..hey Tea, I heard your learnes permit is ready, but you have to have a co pilot before you can drive! does that thing have a rudder?..maybe y'all are just not holdin' your tongues right..yep, that's it! ~ Hazel..

I love the little frog puppet peeping out...Gustave is very sure its family..

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Teeeheeee! In fact, I believe that Frog is Bartholomew, Gustave's third cousin, twice removed, on his mother's side....at least that is the LORE around Nowhere!!!! There are more puppets in my little bag!!! teeehheeee...see what kind of friends you all have here? I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY!
