Pony Party: Unicorns

A few words about unicorns. Apparently one of the reasons unicorns remain in the mythical realm is that Noah forgot to put them on the ark. I prefer to think they swam away during the great flood, did some body surfing and ended up in another world. They still visit occasionally don’t you know. If Jesus can show up as an image in a pancake in Florida, then I maintain that unicorns are still lurking around. Think of them as angels for the non-Christian set.

One legend about unicorns suggests that a beautiful woman named Elly with a wounded heart was healed by the tears of a unicorn.

There are purportedly biblical references in translation that refer to a unicorn like creature who possessed great strength and agility.

Somehow the unicorn also became associated with chaste love and faithful marriage. Ultimately, we like to invest great qualities in mystical creatures as perhaps a foreshadow of the reality that humans have so many failings and we like to think something out there somewhere does possess all of our good/noble qualities. I have no idea.

I have no idea what this next song really has to do with unicorns but it is funny….

Planet Unicorn….. Hey…..

  4. She thought that none of her friends from high school would want to come but they have surprised her and 13 are showing up to celebrate the first mother among them 😉  Baby’s name is still Zoey but I sort of messed up.  About five years ago my daughter babysat a little disabled girl named Zoey who had spinal muscular atrophy.  We had met the family through a disabled children’s support group and they were military.  Zoey’s daddy was a Blackhawk medic.  Zoey’s mom was struck by how wonderful a sister Bren was for her brother and hired her to babysit Zoey sometimes. Zoey was deteriorating quickly though and when my daughter came to realize that Zoey was going to pass away sometime in the near future she told me that if she ever had a little girl she was naming her Zoey and then I guess she forgot about it.  She was talking about her baby name a couple of days back and I started talking about the first Zoey and it completely scared my daughter who had probably had a memory lapse of convenience.  She got very upset and talked about jinxing the baby, jittery stuff, it is hard to have full faith I think when you have a little bro with a gene mutation.  In any case I quickly shut the hell up and we still have a Zoey coming.
