Is There A Bobby Pin Fairy?

Is There A Bobby Pin Fairy? If so, what does it want from me? | The Return of the Modern PhilosopherIs there a Bobby Pin Fairy, Modern Philosophers?

I’m asking for a friend, of course.  I mean, why would a guy living alone want to know if a magical creature called the Bobby Pin Fairy sneaks into homes at night?

If the Bobby Pin Fairy exists is it a friendly creature?  Why does it leave bobby pins all over the house?  Is the Bobby Pin Fairy trying to hurt me…I mean..hurt my friend for whom I am making this inquiry?

Has anyone ever seen the Bobby Pin Fairy?  Would I…umm…my friend be totally freaked out if he ran into this being in the middle of the night in a dark, sometimes creepy house with squeaky floorboards?

Is it safe to assume the Bobby Pin Fairy only appears at night?  That would explain why it has never been spotted even though it seems to roam freely through the house.

Is it possible that the Bobby Pin Fairy is invisible?  Wow!  Now that would make perfect sense, wouldn’t it?  Silent and unseen, it moves through a house even while the occupants are wide awake and going about their business.

Can cats see the Bobby Pin Fairy, though?  I’ve noticed Cali and Luna reacting to things that I cannot see.  Again, not that I am dealing with a Bobby Pin Fairy at The House on the Hill.  I just brought up my kitties because they seem to be very observant, and something tells me that cat eyes are more powerful than human ones.

Why does the Bobby Pin Fairy leave bobby pins behind?  Is it marking its territory?  Is it leaving a trail for other Bobby Pin Fairies to follow?  Are the bobby pins a message that humans simply do not understand?

Is the Bobby Pin Fairy trying to communicate with me?  If so, why is it saying?Fine.  You can probably see right through my story, and I hate lying to you, Modern Philosophers.  I’m asking all these questions for me, not for a friend.

Ever since Saturday, when the first phase of my vacation ended, my world has been totally turned upside down.

One of the things I’ve noticed is that bobby pins are popping up all over The House on the Hill.  They are in random places.  Never the same exact spot, but sometimes in the same room.

I’m not sure that I’m finding them in their original positions, either.  Sometimes, I hear the kitties playing with them in the middle of the night, batting them across the hardwood floors.

Have they happened upon a secret stash of bobby pins left behind by a previous owner?  That seems unlikely as I’ve lived here for thirteen years now and have never come across this odd problem in the past.

They must have been left behind by a magical creature, right?  Why, though?  I love a good puzzle, but this one boggles my mind and scrambles my brain.

Would someone please explain why I’m finding bobby pins all over my home?

Bobby Pin Fairy, if you are reading this post, please know that if I have done something to anger you, or if The House on the Hill is built over your grave and you cannot rest in peace, I am sorry and want to rectify the situation.

Just talk to me, Bobby Pin Fairy.  Tell me what you want from me!

I’m not always this weird.  Follow me on Pinterest for proof of sanity…

    Fairy or thief?! All my bobby pins go missing. Someone must be playing a trick on us and taking mine and giving them to “your friend.”

    Well there definitely is a bobby pin fairy. I have known about him for a while. (And yes, I’m sure it’s a him.) The problem you’re having is that he is strategically removing bobby pins from Illinois and taking them to Maine. Why? I don’t know. He won’t talk to me.

    I haven’t had any bobby pins go missing, or spontaneously appear. Perhaps the local bobby pin fairy has been taken. Is there a bobby pin fairy fairy?

  5. Ocean Bream says:

    My bobby pins are safely secured away in the back of my drawer in a small metal box under lock and key. It has to be this way. That bobby pin fairy is elusive and dangerous, you better watch out, Austin!

  6. Yeah, so I’m not even going to lie, this is weird. I mean anything is possible with cats; we once thought they’d gone so far as to steal our car keys, because, Toonces. But bobby pins? Weird.

    Here’s what you should do: gather all the bobby pins you find together in a pile. Draw a circle around the pile with a red pen. It has to be red, or it won’t work. Then burn some incense, waving the stick over the pile and chanting “Fairy begone, fairy begone, fairy begone!” until the incense has completely burned down.
    If that doesn’t work, you’re in a real trouble 😉
