Today’s set of fancy notions is very special:
It’s a girl doll, and a moray eel, and a yellow pompon. This grouping of random objects may look somewhat uninteresting at first (and sorry I don’t even have a dime in there for perspective; the perspective dime has now gone missing, so Minister of Fancy Notions Weights & Measures Joaquin is definitely fired), but if you just look at it from a different angle:
It somehow becomes very dramatic, doesn’t it? I bet you could make a very scary children’s story just by taking photos of these three things. You could focus on the doll’s legs and shoes for part of the story, or for a different scary story if you wanted to use the pompon and moray eel for something else, because her legs and shoes are very odd. She’s wearing white orthopedic shoes, and her legs are made of some flesh-colored spongy material wrapped around wires so it looks like she’s wearing support hose, but her face:
is very young and sweet looking. She’s a witch! She’s The Thousand-Year-Old Witch Who Steals Little Girls’ Faces With The Help Of Her Moray Eel Named Chet! It’s a great story, I’m telling you. If you want to write it and make a million dollars, you’re going to need these fancy notions. Just write to me at herndonofsunnyvale(at)gmail.com and I’ll send them to you.
