"Daughter of Eve from the far land of Spare Oom where eternal summer reigns around the bright city of War Drobe, how would it be if you came and had tea with me?"
I decided to create a Narnian Fictional Feast. About time, right?
"And really it was a wonderful tea. There was a nice brown egg, lightly boiled, for each of them, and then sardines on toast, and then buttered toast, and then toast with honey, and then sugar-topped cake."
"The Queen let another drop fall from her bottle on the snow, and instantly there appeared a round box, tied with green silk ribbon, which, when opened, turned out to contain several pounds of the best Turkish Delight. Each piece was sweet and light to the very centre and Edmund had never tasted anything more delicious."
On the Menu:
Sugar-topped Almond Cake
Buttered Toast w/ Jam and Honey
The White Witch's Hot Cocoa
It was a lovely little tea. It would've made any faun (or white witch) proud.
I learned something from this Fictional Feast, guys. I learned that Edmund was absolutely bonkers. Why did he like Turkish Delight so much? It was bleh, despite being the chocolate-covered kind! Who wants rose flavored sweets?!?
Snippets of Conversation:
Brendan (older brother): "What are you doing? Why are you making such a huge mess?"
Me: "It's for my fictional feast!"
Brendan: "Please don't say "fictional feast" ever again. So nerdy."
Caleb: "So, you're just putting raw eggs on the table?"
Me: "Yeah, it's just for the pictures. We don't really need to boil any."
Caleb: "But that's so...deceptive!"
Me: "So, what's the verdict on the Turkish Delight?"
Caleb: "Well, the chocolate is good, but the inside tastes really weird and the texture is weird. And it tastes fake. It's not as good as it looks in the movie."
Okay, guys, so I just got back from a trip to Rome. Whhhaaaaat?!? More on that soon! But tell me, how are you all doing?
Also: if you found yourself in a strange world, and a faun invited you for tea, would you agree to go? Maybe Lucy was a bit foolish...but then, who can turn down cake?
