The wise witch of Woolworth’s



The Slightly eccentric A to Z blogging adventure of unknown and rather unpopular Modern fairy tales
2013


W  The wise witch of Woolworth’s
  




The wicked Witch of the West had wooed the young eccentric Writer into her world with words of wealth and wisdom and a large life size waxwork of himself in the Wondrous museum of wonders. All he had to do was write a wild and wistful fairytale for each letter of the alphabet which he thought was well easy.  And sure enough he started well enough with a wink and a wave to his pet waxwing, but as the days passed he grew weary and the wet weather was wearing him down.  “Its not easy Writing with five woolly jumpers on” said the writer, but the wicked witch pointed to paintings on  the walls and said “that is what all these writers said and now they are buried in the woods Wotting (sorry rotting) and being eaten by worms and wiggly things with wings”. The Wicked Witch laughed hysterically WhA WA WhA Wh A WAwaaawawawawawawawawawawa wa wa wa wa waw ha  ha ha, then she said “ You only have X and Y and Z to go now, OK and half of W, so I will not throw you in the wishing well”.




What day of the week is it thought the writer, is it Wednesday, but it was not it was Friday, still it did mean the Weekend was about to start and he would have time to work out fairytales for Y and Z. Then he noticed a wigwam and a wicker chair and a wrestling Whale covered in Wold painting a Wheelbarrow White, What a stroke of luck said the Writer, but the Wicked Witch of the west shouted “WHAT?”

Yes it was the Wise Witch of Woolworths conjuring up W words out of the Wind which was whistling in the castle wings as the weather vane whirled like a wheel.  Stop it shouted the Wicked Witch of the West, as a weasel wearing wellington boots walked by; Stop it Stop it Stop it” whined the Wicked Witch of the West…..

And as the Wicked Witch of the West and the Wise witch of Woolworths waved their arms and Writhed about in a whirlwind of spells, the young eccentric writer wondered off into the sunset and lived happily ever after. . . . . . . . . . .Well for a while anyway.

    1. Ah well Miss Laura I was thinking of just carrying on and going all the way back to A in a slightly mad bit of showmanship. But am I that mad. . . . . ?

    1. You are just like a regular ole J.K. Wrowlings - hahahaha, I found you another W word. Maybe someday you too can get a OBE, then I thought, isn't Obe the name of the Japanese prime minister? And I was right, that isn't his name, its Abe. I think it would be cool if Abe quit being prime minister to focus on the oboe and then became so good at it that the British govt gave him an order to come to the UK to get his OBE. Then he would be Abe of The Oboe with an OBE right at his elbow. Oops, I meant the oboe was near his elbow, not the OBE.

    1. You are very kind, I am disappointed by the lack of interaction between bloggers this year. But I care not, as long as us RATs do our bit all is well.

      Good luck with those horses, I think as long as you always pick the one at the front you cant go wrong. (Bravo Sir, 20 to 1 on the head).

  5. Why is it that my posts are getting more rubbish by the day and yet, your fairytales are still fantastic to read? I've said it once and I'll say it again, you really have outdone yourself this year Rob Z. :)

    1. Last year I did it all sort of on the spur of the moment on the day and that is rather stressful. This year I did pre-write almost all of it and just tweaked what needed tweaking. It was all the drawings that were done the day before as a bit of an extra. I still have pics to do for Y and Z yet but luckily I have tomorrow to do them.

      Anyway I an off to try my hand of building a small wall now. A new skill for me so it might fall over, like me.
