Witches and Walking Dead Cats

Rinpoche Loves Feary Tails: Part 4

“Rinpoche, you look like you’ve seen a ghost. What on earth is wrong with you?”

“I’ve just watched a horrible feary tail on TV, Daddi. There were two children called Handle and Gretel. Their parents abandoned them in the woods, and then they met a witch and she…”

“Are you talking about Hansel and Gretel?”

“Yes, Hansel and Kettle. Daddi, how can I be sure that you and Mummi won’t abandon me in the woods? Then, I might meet a witch in a house made of sardines, and she’ll lock me in a cage, and…”

“Why, you are trembling all over, Rinpoche! I would NEVER abandon you in the woods! Come and sit down here next to me. You’ve had a nasty scare.”

“Daddi, are there really witches in Gloucestershire?”

“No, Rinpoche. We live in a witch-free county.”

“Are you sure a witch won’t come to the house and offer me a poisoned apple?”

“Of course not! Besides, you don’t eat apples.”

“And she won’t make me sleep for a hundred years?”

“That’s not going to happen, Rinpoche.”

“Witches are terrible, Daddi. They are even worse than the big bad wolf.”

“Rinpoche, I really think you should stop watching those Brothers Grimm fairy tales. They are scaring you out of your wits!”

“You’re right, Daddi. From now on, I’m never watching a feary tail again! I spoke to Gwyneth about it this morning, and she’s recommended something less frightening for me to watch instead.”

“What’s that?”

“Gwyneth says there’s an interesting show called ‘The Walking Dead Cats’. I can’t wait to see the first episode today!”
