Well the first thing I learned today about widgets is that they exist.
Unfortunately, much to my disappointment, they are not, mystical creatures that resemble a cross between a witch and a midget.
That would have made today’s ‘Zero to Hero’ Challenge much more exciting.
I could imagine riding through the forest on my unicorn, stopping in for a pint of Ale to the nearest Inn to chat with the local marauderers as to the whereabouts of the elusive Widget. Then back on my horned steed deeper into the forest towards the infamous ‘Cave of Uncertainty’. What lurks inside nobody can be certain…hence the name. I hear a shriek coming from the darkness and follow the echo into the cave.
A cackling wakes me from the maidens spell and from below I feel a sharp pain in my shin. The Widget! She’s fucking bitten me. I use the only weapon I have that is known to be the Widgets only Achilles heel- height. I push the widget away at arms length like a child. I free the maiden with my free arm and I grab the widget and dunk her in the cauldron before making our escape. Then we ride.
But only to the local hospital where I have to have a tetanus shot and have my wound looked at. Then we ride…again.
But they’re not. They are…..(let’s see what Google has to say)…. things that add content and features to my sidebar….hmmm…ok.
Well I should probably get cracking. Who knows, maybe there’s a Damsel in Distress Widget?
