Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Magic Shake-Ball:

I haven't heard from Michelle since she left for Disney World. Has she been swallowed up by the Magic Mountain? Has she been shrunk down into a teeny tiny Small Person in the Small World?


Not marble nor the gilded monuments
Of princes shall outlive this powerful rhyme,
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone besmeared with sluttish time.

(Sonnet #55)


Oh my God! She's been turned into stone by the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Michelle! Michelle!! Use the Force! Wait, no, that only works in the films I grew up with. If only my kids had been ambitious enough to read the Harry Potter books, maybe I'd be able to help her! Oh, God, I'm a terrible parent, and now Michelle is going to be stuck in the Magic Kingdom forever!
