My dear and special friends,
It seems as though our own Lethal Leprechaun, who is, as you probably already know, the Lord High Mayor of Leprechaunia, has been called back home to handle some very important Middle Kingdom issues. There is no real danger involved, or so we’ve been told, but piles and piles of diplomatic work.
Frankly and honestly, it’s mostly my fault. He’s been doing such an awesome job of taking care of me and my problems these last several months leading up to my surgery, that he has neglected his duties in Leprechaunia. I’m not 100% sure exactly what the problems are, but I do know that he has activated the Royal Leprechaunian Marines, the Royal Leprechaunian Navy (to haul the Royal Leprechaunian Marines around), the Royal Leprechaunian Woman’s Auxiliary (to take care of the physical and logistical needs of the Royal Leprechaunian Marines), and the Ninja Kitty Home Offensive & Spy Service (NK HOSS).
He also packed his collection of dancing shellieleaghs, his entire legal staff, all the “Day Girls”, and most of his good recipe books. So what that means exactly is anybody’s guess. He could be gone for several weeks or several years, if it ends up being a prolonged battle – be that in the courtroom or the actual field of war.
Thankfully for us, our two mythologies run on different time streams and what might be a year in Leprechaunia is only a few weeks here in our realm. That’s really not as odd as it sounds. It happens all the time, which is one of the reasons most of us mythological creatures live such a long time; it enables us to deal a bit more effectively with erratic time behavior. It also has its drawbacks if you do it wrong. Like the time I hopscotched a couple of realms to grab a couple of my favorite cigars. I told my girl friend I’d be right back and when I got home I found her married to one of my buddies with several kids. Seems that after 8 years or so she had me declared legally dead and a couple of years after that had moved on with her life. Boy, was my face red! Yup, I realm walked in the wrong order, just cause I wasn’t paying enough attention.
Anyway, long story short, There will be no Leprechaun Laffs this week and possibly for the foreseeable future. I will do my best to keep you all informed without breaking OPSEC and COMSEC and to keep you entertained on my own until Lethal’s return. Communication is somewhat difficult with a lot of my messages going unanswered so don’t be surprised if you try and don’t get a rapid answer.
So, until next we speak…
