It was a glorious day when Magic the Unicorn came into my life. It was quite unexpected, really. I was sitting, innocently chatting in Jill’s kitchen, when Rachel arrived. But Rachel didn’t arrive alone. Nope. Rachel looked a bit wind-blown, because I’m pretty sure she rode Magic over a rainbow and through the skies to come to my birthday lunch. How she said goodbye to Magic, I will never understand. But don’t worry, Rachel. Magic has a good home.
If you too are considering a pet unicorn, there are some things you should keep in mind.
First of all, if you are going to the arboretum, or really anywhere, you will need to get a trustworthy unicorn-sitter. These are not easy to come by.
Secondly, unicorns really are magical. If you are driving home and suddenly need to slam on your brakes, unicorns will act as an airbag, saving your camera and pretty tulips from smashing into the ground.
Fourthly, unicorns don’t always have a lot to say. This can be nice if you need to some time to think. But if you are driving in the car together, sometimes they are so quiet that you forget they are even there, and then you see shadowy movement out of the corner of your eye and you will jump and feel all panicky and scared. Then you will bravely peek over and see that it is just your pet unicorn. And all will be right with the world again.
Fifthly, unicorns never turn down a game of Candyland and will always compliment your hair.
So really there are only pros to having a pet unicorn. Go lasso one in a nearby field today! Or you can always come over and hang out with me and Magic.
I’d love to chat more, but I think I hear Magic calling. I promised that we could watch My Little Pony on Netflix.
