Werewolf of Oz Plotline Warns to Always be A-Were

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s that early midweek time of the week, so after the serious nature of yesterday’s blog, we think it’s time for the first episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

This episode introduces Cathy a little more, while this book’s version of the Wizard of Oz‘s good witch character, Mildly Monotheistic Moby, leaves the story for the time being… with an a-were-ness warning…

MiMo recovered well. Nursing MiMo also seemed to stimulate Cathy’s spirit.

MiMo said he believed we’d won a major victory in our Ozyssey, and that we were now entering the final straight. That was good news, as I was already missing Green.

I thought Cathy would be a great asset to our team, so I asked her if she would join us. I was delighted that she agreed without much hesitation.

It was soon time to leave Port Fairy and say farewell to our mild friend. MiMo reminded me to stay aware, as more dangers lay ahead. He patted my head through the emerald cork hat as he said goodbye; my hat seemed to warm; before flying off in his porcelain pod.

MiMo’s final words inspired another of my rambling poems, and I’d like to share it with you to bring the curtain down on this chapter:

We’re Were Aware 

Be aware where you are
Be a were wherever you are
Be a were and aware
Be aware you’re a were.

Notes 

Shire of Moyne sounds reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings shire.
