Voyage of the Mimi Update
(Stop reading now if you have a totally normal tendency to anthropomorphize things like boats and velveteen rabbits and sweaters with irreparable chili stains.)
Well, um, a Pinner who attended high school with the Captain’s grandson (the Captain lives!) reports that, as of last winter, the Mimi was in a salvage yard “awaiting her fate.”
Like, you know, the Velveteen Rabbit. When he was sitting on the pile of things waiting to be burned? Because of that BITCH KID who got over it in about fourteen seconds?
Whatever. Maybe a beautiful fairy showed up and made the Mimi into a…real boat.
This is not a workable metaphor. Be good to your boats and childhood toys.
