What A Mother Will Do For Her Son
Once upon a time there was a boy who loved Halloween. He loved it so much he would spend months figuring out what he wanted to be and then he would start working on his costume.
He spent hours with a friend building a shield and a boomerang. He then came to his mother and asked her to do the sewing part. His mother, despite being the wicked witch of the west, had a soft place in her heart or a lapse in her memory of the gnashing of teeth from every year previous sewing costumes for her little boy, agreed.
The wicked witch of the west began sewing her little boy's (who isn't a little boy any longer) costume. She started with some boots, then she made a belt, and a belty thingy to go over the shoulder to hold a sword. Then she started on the red dressy thingy only we don't call it a dress because it is on a boy who is very much all boy. Knowing her boy is all boy the wicked witch of the west sewed some shorts to go under the dress but isn't a dress thing because this boy especially doesn't know how to hold his knees together. Lastly, the hat.
As in years past there was much gnashing of teeth and allergies making eyes watery as the wicked witch of the west had much pain in her lower back after hours and hours spent hunched over her sewing machine.
She resolved that she would quit and never sew another costume in her life ever again as she is NOT a sewer........ but alas........ the little boy knew how to melt the wicked witches hard and crusty heart by coming over to her many a time and putting his arms around the witch would tell her how much he loved her and how proud he was of her for doing something hard and he thought the costume was perfect and that she was doing a good job. The wicked witch loved her son so much that she cast a spell upon him and transformed him into a little elf. Pointy ears and all........ You might recognize this little elf....... enter the land of Zelda and you will see a red Link. A red Link who conquers all! Which is why they lived happily ever after.
