Fancy handshake? Check. Unusual clothing or adornment? Double check. Secret location? Check, check and check. Plans for building an empire or taking over something? Check. The beginning of a secret society meeting? Sure, if meeting under the table is a clandestine location and wearing a blanket over your shoulder counts as unusual clothing. Empire building? Well let’s just start off with a few building blocks and see how that goes before we build a whole empire. (Blocks can be a bit tricky don’t you know.)
The secret society? The Masterful Moppets, aka toddlers. Yes toddler. Have you ever known a more secret, odd group of beings? Their only downfall on the whole secret side of things is that they like to share, sometimes over share, what they are doing, have done, or learnt. But hey we all have to have our faults. Other than that, to me the world of the Masterful Moppets is a complete mystery with strange rituals (rubbing one’s thumb over one’s favorite blanket repeatedly), odd language and symbols and let us not forget a magical force or entity they believe will bring them/give them anything they desire.
This magical force seems to respond to tears, wails and cuteness. Not necessarily in that order though. The magical force or entity? Sometimes known as mama or dada, perhaps mommy or daddy. It matters now so long as the force responds to their manipulations, and if not, surely they can wear this entity down into giving in. Or at least try for the motto of the Masterful Moppets is try, cry, and nap.
