I remember that guy! He could cut my hair in under four minutes. Too bad he's not around anymore. Now I get my hair cut here:

I know who Enzo Ferrari was, I was a little slow on the uptake on putting the joke together... speaking of slow, that post was quite awhile back wasn’t it?

I stopped believing in the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus (if not St. Nicholas) long ago; actually, if truth be told, even as a very young child I thought something fishy was going on.

He sees you when you’re sleeping? When you're awake? And this was long before Google, GPS and surveillance cameras?

A rabbit who lays eggs?

A person sneaking into kids’ bedrooms to steal their baby teeth, but feels so guilty about it she (she, he, it?) leaves money behind? (And what’s up with this fascination with kids’ teeth that have fallen out, it’s the weirdest fetish I’ve ever heard of outside of TAD and PAD.)

And a Tobacco Fairy? C’mon.

Then, yesterday. A big package arrives with a Tobacco Fairy return address! Breathlessly, suspending disbelief, I open the box. There, surrounded by plastic peanuts, two jars. One, labeled HERS, filled with candy corn. Another, labeled HIS, empty but for one white tip broken off of a single piece of candy corn that rattles around, lonely. The Tobacco Fairy knew!

My wife is delighted. I’m astonished by the Tobacco Fairy’s prescience.

Mrs. Durango immediately opens her jar and digs in. Inside the jar, hidden, surrounded by candy corn, an exotic, foil wrapped piece of the chocolatier’s art magically appears. She unwraps it, pops it into her mouth and gleefully exclaims, her words almost unintelligible because her mouth is full of candy, “Oh, these are my favorite! They’re like a rainbow in my mouth!”

Her exact words. I swear it.

And I with my nearly empty jar, empty but for a single tiny white piece of broken off candy corn (that looks suspiciously like a baby tooth) am left to wonder ...

How do he know?

And suddenly, like an innocent child, I believe.

I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

Preserving and protecting our children’s faith, innocence and joy is one of a parent’s greatest responsibilities.
Finding it again for ourselves, one of our greatest challenges.

In spite of evil in the world.
Because of our divine hope.

Didn’t intend for the underlying seriousness of this to become too large a part of my post, but I honestly believe that the Tobacco Fairy’s playfulness and generosity are manifestations of grace.

Thanks for your post, Paul.

And thanks for your grace, DL.

Early discussions are very promising.
