Not to be confused with a previous #hawmc post regarding my mascot…Purella a Purple Painted Pony.
The “animal” that would represent my health condition(s) <——plural would be a unicorn (pronounced “you-knee-korn”…because it’s more fun and has a slightly sarcastic edge to it).
“D’awwww…because it’s beautiful and prancy and all?!?”
Wait, what?!?! We’re talking about Lupus, here, and it’s plethora of secondary syndromes. The you-knee-korn is, in fact, an aggregate representation of them all. In one. And it’s an ass-hat.
To others, they can’t see it.
It merely does not exist.
To me…well…look up the historical references to “Unicorn”…they’re in just about every faith…
Bible: “…the creature was variously represented as a kind of wild ass…”
China: the qilin – “… it is a hybrid animal that looks less unicorn than chimera, with the body of a deer, the head of a lion, green scales and a long forwardly-curved horn…”
India: “…produces a one-horned horse sometimes called a cartazonos, meaning…”rhinoceros”…”
So. Now I’ve got some freak kind of “thing”…sorta kinda like a deer body, lion’s head and scales built like a rhinoceros brick shit-house using the cover of a wild ass.
I would’ve said “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”…but that would have been too easy and way less fun. 😉
