Has any one heard of the expresion " ASK THE FAIRIES" apparently if you have lost something you say out loud, please fairies where is it, the next time you look you will find whatever it was you had lost.
I know it sounds stupid but I have tried it and it worked.
Has anyone else tried it?

I've always thought this is a bit dodgy. On the one had you could be asking a favour of your 'household spirits' which seems relatively safe. On the other hand you could be asking Satan. Which would be bad - what would he want in return.

Very Happy Bwhahahah!!! My work here is done.

But seriously. No I doubt you've lost your sole unless you signed it away. Of course your glasses could be cursed.

Stand by for detail's of poltergeist activity centered around p.youngers glasses.Wink

I heard this one a while back, but the creatures concerned were called Inky Bloaters. If you lost a sock, hairbrush or whatever, like you said, just ask them nicely, and the lost item would appear ( as if by magic ) at some later stage.

I think I got this from a Danniele Dax album. Inky Bloaters - they're a consequence of never being sure - or something like that.

it's all true. ask them to return something and they will. if they want, sometimes they just nick stuff cos they can it's a very faery thing to just varnish stuff.
fear not mortals, the devil does not have your soul, or your glasses, he's a christian superstition to keep the plebs in line, pay attention. fae on the other hand are very real.

oh sure faeries have a sock fetish. somewhere there's a big big ball of sox waiting for the man from the guiness book of records to stop by. i used to work as a customer advisor for 'a washing machine company' and had a little old lady *bless* ring up and ask me where her socks kept going to. we chatted and i found out all about her grandson *bless* and told her i thought she must have faeries in her washer and that her particular model was especialy well know for attracting them.
Quill, who'll tell you anything

ps there's lots of faeries in Wales i discovered recently

Do they strip it first? cos I've got a mandolin with a knackered finish that needs re-done, and I certainly wouldn't mind leaving a saucer of milk out, or whatever! Wink

Very Happy This proves my theory that there is a proportional relationship between thread length and sillyness.

There was a letter in FT a few months ago that claimed asking Satan instead of the fairys could get you stuff that you hadn't even lost.
