There is a set of children’s books that I am looking for. I had them when I was a child, and I loved them to death, and I want to get them for my kids. It was a 2-book collection of fairy tales. Not just the standard fairy tales, but all sorts of fairy tales I’ve never heard anywhere else. It wasn’t “illustrated”, just a few illuminated drawings here and there. Not that that ever stopped me, I read them ever since I can remember (and I learned to read at 3). Anyway, they’re two books, sized in between paperbacks and trade editions, with hard light blue covers. It was called something like “World’s Greatest Fairy Tales” I think. I checked in a bookstore a few weeks ago and didn’t see them. If anyone knows how I can find copies of these books, please let me know.
When I was planning for all of this, I never thought I would come to the conclusion that my ears should be surgically removed. They just get in the way when you’re spending your life on your side. Anybody who has slept a night through with their ear folded under their head knows what I’m talking about!
At least I don’t have to eat sideways, I have a dispensation for that. But I still can’t cook my own food. I feel like a vegetable, helpless and dependent for everything. But still, I can’t change any of this; I wouldn’t want to even if I could. So I’m damn well going to enjoy it!
