It’s Beautiful, Or Not

by on August 26, 2015

The door opened, and Mr. Stamper saw the artifact, a golden box with decorative angels. The space otter didn’t know the history. He popped the lid and looked inside. Only dust, at first. Then the dust started glowing, and the angels screamed.

    Ohhh. That’s disturbing.

  2. Can we go back in time and give Stamper a copy of Edith Hamilton’s Mythology?

    • I don’t know about Stamper, but I know I need to read that myself. I think I read it once, some years ago…

      • Wait. weren’t you referring to Pandora’s box?

      • I was actually thinking more along the lines of Raiders of the Lost Ark… but Pandora works too, as a lesson against opening strange boxes.

      • Whew, I feel better now, because I was totally getting a Raiders of the Lost Ark vibe off of that.

  3. Too bad he didn’t learn from Pandora!

    And this is why learning history is so important. And mythology. And adventure movies. 🙂

      p.s. love the title

      • Thanks. And indeed, education about history and myths and Indiana Jones movies is important. 🙂

  5. The first thing came to my mind was the Pandora’s box. But you had RotLA in your mind. Guess we all interpret things differently

    • Indeed; I do like the different interpretation. I can see how people would get Pandora; I might have to work that into the next story. 😀

    You had me at “space otter.” The mental image is amazing.
