I’m Draco; and even though I’m a tough guy, I have always felt that Lady Luck is sitting on my shoulder. Let me tell you why.
My Italian parents, living in Rome, gave me and my brothers the name Draco which means dragon, and everyone knows that dragons are really dangerous creatures. However, one of my best friends growing up was the Greek dragon, Hydra who according to the myth, was killed by Hercules. But don’t believe everything you read, because here’s an example of where that Lady Luck part came into play.
Hydra’s parents, as a safety measure, made certain that he always wore a thick piece of glass as a protective shield, instead of a cap like the other kids. And, as everyone knows, you can see through glass.
So, when the incredibly powerful Hercules attempted to slay my friend, Hydra looked up through the glass and saw Hercules with his sword raised. Then, just seconds before the sword came down, Hydra took a giant breath and breathed a flame so strong that Hercules was frightened for the first time in his life and took a huge step back and up, never to be seen again.
And, even more important, here I am – Draco, as strong and handsome as ever, sitting with my brothers and our good dragon friends Hydra with Glass.
Have I made my point?
