Goddess of the Week: Ix Chel...speaking of swine

You had to know that when the end came it would not be through fire or flood -- it would be through pigs.  Swine flu, or baconnaise's revenge, has arrived, so naturally panic has ensued.  Luckily, there is a goddess just for this occasion.  

Say hola to Ix Chel, the Mayan moon goddess, who is also a medicine goddess.  Her favorite patients are women in labor, but, in a pinch, she will look after the influenza ridden too.

She can definitely feel your pain.  Although she never had swine flu, she did have a bad relationship with her husband, the sun.  Total jealous, demanding jerk.  He convinced himself that she was sleeping with his brother so he threw Ix Chel out of the sky.  

When she found refuge on an island of serpents, the sun was all, "Come back.  I promise I'll change.  I won't be jealous anymore."  

Do I need to say she went back?  Yup.  Big mistake.  He was his old jerky self the next day.  Finally she realized that goddesses need gods like fish need high heels and she left him for good.  

Free of a bad relationship, she could devote herself more fully to her work, which is lucky for you because swine flu ain't no pig in lipstick and it may be headed your way.  Oink.

I hear the sun is a real narcissist, it's like he thinks the universe revolves around him or something.

It looks like you got rid of Litsa just in time! It's bad enough being exposed to everything from the children, you don't want worry about getting the flu from your pig! I don't think any of us need to worry unless they announce the newest flu is the dog flu.

Shell Sherree said...

Hmmm, I'm suspicious now. Did you really never have a pig, Margaret? Or did you want to move Litsa on lest she cast a porky-pox on your home, but fearing blogful retribution, you pretended Litsa was a pigment of your imagination? Hmmm.

See what all you loco female blogger's caused! Yeah, it's the Year of de Pig for y'all, to say de least!!

Now this K9 has one more reason to keep away from the homo sapien.

I knew I could find the up-to-date info on the swine flu right here. This is going to be my go-to spot on the web from now on, because you just can't get the facts on the news.

I have been down for the count, but lx Chel must be looking out for me because...I may be virusy, but no oinking here.

Poor Ix Chel, burnt by the sun. (Can we get a pronunciation guide on this one?)

Linda Dove said...

Male chauvinist pig.

No wonder she's so good at this swine flu thing.

I'm living dangerously. I refuse to throw out my sprouts.
May I compliment your choice of a goddess from this continent. A Mayan moon goddess, charming!

Margaret said...

Very funny everybody. As for pronunciations, I haven't a clue.

Baconnaise! They're wild about that stuff in Tennessee. There are commercials about it, including one in which a lady says she puts it on "everything"! Yikes...

But we'll always have the Piggly Wiggly.

Margaret said...

PPIO: Thanks for the info. I had no idea it was such a big deal down there.
