Choice of Heads II
I searched at the shelves as drawf man looked at me.
"You can come closer and move them if you want...there are more behind the ones you see."
I moved to the shelves and started to rearrange some of the heads, like I was looking at canned goods in a supermarket.
"What's this one?" I asked as I found a head marked, "My Grandma."
"Ohhhh..." That's your grandma's head. His eyes seemed to sparkle when he said it.
"I don't understand," I said.
"If you put that one on...you become your grandma."
"What? How does that happen.?"
He shrugged his shoulders and his eyebrows furrowed. "Beats me," he said. But he was smiling like a kid that had a secret.
"My grandma..." I said. Did I really want to become her? What the heck would that be like?
I had many found memories of her...she had been a real character.
"O.k." I said finally. "I'll try this one."
"Excellent choice! Excellent." Dwarf man said. I give some free sample time...just to make sure it's what you want." Wow! I wasn't expecting that. I smiled and breathed in the old smells of wood. Mmmmm...nice.
"I'll get you a chair, you can sit and relax and I'll bring out 'Your Grandma,' and you can try her on. "
Dude...what a trip. Freaky....
"Thanks," I said. This was getting more unreal and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. But I had a feeling of kid excitement... Christmas morning about to open presents excitement....magical. Drawf man was smiling..I was getting giddy...mmmm..just like when I was a kid.
"Be right back, " he said. He disappeared behind the curtain behind the counter. I looked at "Grand Ma's Head," and wondered what was this going to be like.
"Hey, Grandma," I said. "This should...interesting..."
