Psyche and Eros - Part Sixteen
After debating the issue for a month (yeah, they did add a pay rise for deities on to the end of bill), they voted and it was past unanimously. Eros and Psyche could get married, as per Athena's bill of 6200 B.C. Record number A44 Z333078, which was recorded in triplicate, signed and sent to the gods of bureaucracy for storage and to be uploaded onto the net on the .gods intranet for all to see.
Hermes was sent to fetch Psyche in order to sip from the cup of immortality. Knowing it would unite her and Eros forever, she did so willingly.
The marriage was quickly organised at her father's palace, in the temple of Aphrodite. Everyone who was anyone was there. Famous poets, play writes, actors, beasts who eat heroes, heroes, kings, queens, some more heroes, gods, goddesses, a winged horse, a sphinx, some guy who sniffs glue out the back of the local seven eleven, oracles from Delphi and one of Zeus's burps which had created a life of it's own.
It was an A-list wedding to end all weddings. Psyche looked beautiful in her white dress. Eros looked fabulous in his bright Hawaiian board shorts, red Hibiscus shirt and flip flops.
The ceremony was wonderful, and even though most didn't understand Zeus's surfer talk, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. It was now true, that Eros (LOVE) would never ever again be separated from Psyche (THE SOUL). Which is why, when we fall in love, it effects us to our very souls.
After the ceremony was over, the very proud King was helping his servants clean up the temple.
'Who are you?' he asked a strange ugly man standing in the middle of the temple.
'Oh, my name is Dabido,' said Dabido.
'Really?' the King asked. 'What are you doing here?'
'Oh, about a year ago I was told to come here by Aphrodite herself. She promised I'd have the worlds most beautiful woman fall in love with me.'
'Oh,' said the King. 'I suspect she's forgotten about you then.'
'Really?' asked Dabido. 'How do you know that?'
'Well, mate. You just saw that wonderful wedding?'
'Well, that was her. Only, she married the god Eros.'
'Are you sure?'
'Yep,' said the King, who then explained the entire story to Dabido.
'Well, I guess that's it then,' said Dabido.
'I guess that is it,' replied the King. 'So, what you gonna do about it?'
'I guess I'll go home and blog about it,' said Dabido.
'That sounds like a mighty fine idea,' said the King.
Dabido then turned and left. Which, my friends, explains the story you just read, and concludes the explanation as to why I don't have a girl friend. :-)
