It makes no difference who you are…
unless you are a BUG!!!
A BUG who all his short life has DREAMED
of going to Disneyland!!!
So there we were standing in line for the Monorail. Both of us with our passports ready to enter the Happiest Place on Earth!
Little Milo was jumping up and down with so much excitement that he almost fell to the platform below, but don’t worry Deb, I’m taking good care of your little bug boy ;-).
The first thing Milo wanted to do was run straight through Sleeping Beauty’s Castle to King Arthur's sword, for he longed to pull it out of the stone where it was mystically held in placed by one of Merlin’s spells. As you know, only the true king can release it from the icy grips of that ancient rock. He’d heard other bugs talking about it and knew in his heart of hearts that he would be the one!!!
I didn’t have the heart to tell him it wasn’t the real sword in the stone.
But he pulled and tugged…
and tugged some more, but alas, the sword didn’t budge so…
we had popcorn instead. I know that whenever I’m feeling blue a bowl of popcorn cheers me like nothing else and it seemed to work for Milo too. For a little guy he sure can eat a lot!
Milo was very impressed by the many different boats at the Magical Kingdom and kept asking the cutest questions that I couldn’t answer. “Don’t you want to know about the architecture,” I’d ask. “No, boats” was his reply. I could tell him anything about the architectural styles represented in the park, but not much about the boats. I have to admit it was the first awkward moment Milo and I had shared since I lifted him from his SMTU until…
another boat drifted by. A flat bottom river boat that runs on steam, has a giant paddle wheel that propels it through the treacherous shallow waters of the Rivers of America. Plus its covered with Gingerbread! “Gingerbread?” He asks. I could see a little gleam in his eye at the thought of all that sugar. “No Milo, it’s made out of wood.” “Wood?” “Yes wood.”
I could see he was a bit perplexed and who wouldn’t be with a language that uses one word that has multiple meanings. I have to admit, it baffles me at times too.
We met cute girls on the way who happily posed with Milo. Thank you cute girl ;-). I forgot to ask your name, but Milo enjoyed meeting you and loved your blue scarf and your sweet smile! And we wouldn't want to forget the cute scrolly stuff on the hem of your dress!
Milo won FIRST PLACE in the sheep shearing contest. Have you ever seen a bug sheer a sheep? Neither had I until this moment and I don’t think I’ll ever see anything quite like it again. It’s one of those memories that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life!!
Deb, I know you would have been so proud of your boy…wish you could have been here!!
We passed a huge tall mountain where you could hear magical singing so we stopped to sing a silly song. Milo loves to sing and has a beautiful voice for a bug.
After a long journey down a steep hill we made it to Pooh’s Corner, but there was no Pooh. Milo didn’t notice at all. He was too busy playing with the Bumblephants and eating honey. Milo loves honey!
Milo! That’s not a water slide, its a tipped over jar of honey. What a sticky mess you’ll be!
The sun was setting and it was time to go home so we said good bye to the
Magic Kingdom and scurried on our way.
Tomorrow Milo’s going to do girl Saturday things and shop for a pretty light fixture. I’m not sure how he feels about that, but he is after all at the whim of his hostess.
Oops…he just heard me and mumbled something about Rooty toot Rhonda Roo ( she’s his next stop on his Grand Adventure). He’s hoping YOU’RE not going to make him do things like shop for girl things…
he is a boy after all!!!
Milo and I will see you all sometime tomorrow and hope you have a wonderful day. Deb, Milo is blowing you kisses from sunny California all the way to sunny Arizona ;-)
He misses you and Alice, but is having
