September 3rd, we celebrated Ganesha Chaturthi in a different way. Maui and I went over to Sweet Chariot, bought a “Happy Birthday” butterscotch cake; my wife dekkoed up an idol we had with small tidbit streamers and aromatherapy candles.
In attendance, as special guest, was Swiper, the sneaky fox who, I think wanted to swipe the cake ! But we all managed to shout in unison, “Swiper, no swiping !”, and that encouraged the naughty fox to behave.
My wife did notice, later, though that the slice of cake that had been offered to Lord Ganesha, had mysteriously shrunken in size. Was it the Lord himself ? Swiper ? Or somebody else ?
