Fairy Dust

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!

Gak, thud.

*grind grind grind*

One thought on “Fairy Dust

  1. 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.
