My mom is going in for surgery next week to repair a fracture in her leg. The doctors are going to remove a portion of the bone and replace it with an iron rod. They’ll also put a bit of ‘cadaver dust’ in there to help the bone and rod fuse together.
Predictiably, this leads to a conversation.
Steph : Cadaver dust? Is that like fairy dust?
Me : I think so.
Steph : So they get it from dead fairies?
Me : I don’t believe in fairies!
*grind grind grind*
One thought on “Fairy Dust”
Oh, I think you’d want to dry the fairy first. I have this image in my head, of a row of food dehydrators loaded with fairies, their tiny feet just visible through the glass, and their little flattened wings stuck to the mesh.
