years ago when i was living in santa barbara and working as a nanny, my friend robin and i sold fairy wings at festivals for leslie, the woman we nannied for.
that's right. she made fairy wings. she lived on an avocado and lemon farm in summerland, california and made fairy wings. we watched her kids and sometimes sold the wings at festivals. we were really good at it. you'd be surprised how jaded the vendors in the festival circuit are. we were like a breath of fresh fucking air.... and we wore the product well.
i was just sitting here today smiling over the memory of the venom in leslie's eyes when another fairy wing vendor "stole" her idea to put fake flower petals inside the tulle of the fairy skirts. she was so outraged. so indignant. so wronged.
it's a dog eat dog world man.
