Then The Goddess of Angels got down and The God of The Road took her place on The Stand. He looked just like my Dad except he was wearing a Jack Kerouac style Road-Uniform of a plain white t-shirt and jeans.
“God of The Road,” The God of Judgment said. “What do you know about The Bluebird?”
“Honestly,” he said, “I’d never heard of him until just recently. But I started seeing him on The Road more and more when he began delivering pizzas. Then he went on The Great Trip driving across most of America with On The Road at his side, and I liked that.”
“Is The Bluebird a Great Driver?”
“I sure as hell didn’t give him a Gift for it or anything. In fact, he was once terrible and barely able to pass Driver Training. He’s never learned to drive a stick shift, and he’s still terrified of parallel parking, but he has improved alot. He can deliver a pizza quickly now, he’s got pretty good Road Endurance, and he survived NewYorkCity, which are the toughest Roads I’ve made. But here’s the craziest thing, he was somehow able to out maneuver The Guardian of The Gates of The UnderWorld. See for yourselves.”
Then a movie came up that showed me and Wings driving thru the rain in Kansas City. When it got to the part when we had to fly over The Monster to finally break free, the crowd went “ooh!”
“Isn’t this impossible to do in a standard Suburu automobile?” The God of Judgment asked. “Did you help him?”
“No way,” The God of The Road said, “he did it all by himself as if he were flying a jet plane. I’ve only seen something like it before from Drivers I’ve Touched. He may not be as good as them, but he is sometimes somehow able to access The Magic of The Road.”
“Let The Record show The Bluebird is a pretty good driver now, but does this help him MeToo any better?”
“I can say he can at least Travel to almost any Reality in a car, but whether he can MeToo once he’s there, I don’t really know.”
“Does any other God here have more information on how well The Bluebird can MeToo?”
He gave it a minute, but no one came forward.
“Wait,” The God of Judgment said, “The Bluebird is supposed to be a MusicMan Traveler right? Where is The Goddess of Music?”
