Mighty Thor Visits One-Year-Old Boy
I’ve waited months for Thor to visit me during his world tour, which began long, long ago on
Debra Kristi’s blog, Sparks in the Fire of Imagination. You can read about his other stops there.
Tameri Etherton entertained Thor by celebrating her birthday and Easter with him before sending him my way. As soon as Thor arrived, I whisked him off to meet my grandbaby and help entertain him (in other words, help me babysit).
Mighty Thor made a grand entrance.
They got off to a good start, but what was up with the ‘Human Child’ lingo? I figured Thor must be bad with names, so I played along.
‘Human Child’ loves new toys, but. . .
. . . he did not like Thor’s tone.
“You not my daddy!”
He yanked on Thor’s cape. . .
. . . held him upside down, and. . .
. . . made him ride the choo-choo.
Next, a little dunk in the ‘strange white pond.’
Thor noticed Human Child’s fascination with the water, which ‘sometimes swirled, emptied, then replenished.’
While the child was preoccupied, Thor made his move.
But to no avail.
Human Child snatched him up, put him behind bars. . .
. . . then took him to a torture chamber.
Thor spotted a tall tower with the word “genie” on it.
“I will release the genie to distract Human Child long enough to escape this madness.”
He opened the top, only to be assaulted by toxic fumes.
“What trickery is this? Smells like a dung hill. If there’s a genie in there, he’s nothing but a dead carcass now. Hmm, this passage must lead to the dungeon.”
Finally, after enduring hours of torment, Human Child subjected Thor to the worst of the worst:
“Enough!” Mighty Thor thundered.
With that, he disappeared in a flash.
Watch the video for Human Child’s take on Thor’s visit. This is the best part of the post!
