The Difficulty of Letting Go
Shotglass Collarbone was dizzy for years. Then he boarded a plane. As soon as he became airborne Shotglass lost his dizziness. The vertigo returned when he landed, but Shotglass now knew what to do. He would live off the ground. Shotglass built a treehouse in a solid old oak and moved in. He was immediately free of any signs of dizziness. The creatures of the air welcomed Shotglass to their world. They offered to outfit him with wings. Shotglass considered this carefully, then politely declined. I have connections, he said, to my former realm. I need to maintain my roots.
