Wizard of Oz mini-theme, March 2013


No female alive could ever resist a pair of red shoes, there’s no doubt!  And so naturally all the sisters of witchery quarreled over the ruby slippers, so very deep and rich and their magic was that of the heart’s desire of the wearer.  One could travel to any place, one could dance to any tune, one could command the attention of the entire world with one rufescent-shod foot.  Oh they were so beauteous to behold…conjured from the rarest incantations by the light of a harvest moon, with the most precious petals of a thousand roses sprinkled into the cauldron.  They glowed deep as embers and bright as the setting sun.  But they caused such an abiding terrible envy in the hearts of others, for to view them upon the feet of another was to bring much wailing and rending of garments and gnashing of teeth.  Such ugliness was bestowed upon those who lusted for the ruby slippers, who imagined how perfect their lives could be if they could only wear them for a little while. 


But what none of them ever realized, the witches who did get the chance to slip them upon their feet and experience their grand magick was…they weren’t wearing the shoes at all…oh no, the shoes were wearing them!
