Unicorns must have such a wonderful lifestyle! Is their life really all sunshine and rainbows? What is it like to be a unicorn? How do unicorns live? To find out, we should ask an expert. Who knows more about unicorns than a unicorn? Today, we have a rare opportunity to learn about unicorn life from a real unicorn!
We interviewed a typical unicorn, if you can call a unicorn “typical”, Hippolyta. She talks about where she comes from, what she does on a typical day and a bit about her future plans as well. We are proud to present an exclusive interview with Hippolyta the unicorn!
Hippolyta, How Old Are You?
You should never ask a woman´s age, should you? But maybe I can tell you. I´m 150 years old, so I´m still quite young. Unicorns can live hundreds of years, so for a unicorn, I´m still on the young side.
Tell Me About Your Day.
My day? Like a typical day? I live in a small family of unicorns, like unicorns usually do. I don’t have any offspring of my own. Actually, I´m not sure if I even want any. It´s not like unicorn babies aren’t cute, of course they are. But babies, even unicorn babies, can be so much trouble, you know?
Anyway, I still live with my parents and my two younger siblings. We don’t stick together all the time, after all, I’m already a grown-up. Sometimes I go on my own trips, but on a normal day I hang out with my family, or at least we gather for the night.
We wake up when we feel like it, and feel the rays of the sun warming us. We munch on some grass and flowers for breakfast. Just because we want to, you know. Actually, we get energy from the first rays of the sun already, because unicorns get energy through their horns directly from the sun.
After breakfast, I usually go on my own adventures for the day. I run in the forest, sometimes I do it all day, because unicorns never get tired, you know? I can run hundreds of miles in just one day, just because I like running.
If there are rainbows around, I like to chase those. That´s a lot of fun for a whole day! Rainbows are difficult to catch, but if you succeed, oh, they taste so yummy! They taste like whatever we like, like when I eat rainbows, they taste like dandelions and chocolate cupcakes.
How do I know what chocolate cupcakes taste like? Of course, I do. I happen to know where a really good bakery is. Yes, a human bakery. Sometimes, I sneak to the bakery to get some treats from a nice girl who works there. She just loves unicorns, so she always gives me some cupcakes when I visit her. She´s not supposed to, you know, but of course she can’t help herself. I´m a unicorn, after all!
Sometimes, I play with my unicorn friends in the forest and by a waterfall. At night, I gather with my family again. We look at the stars and the moon in the sky before we go to sleep.
Where Were You Born?
I was born by a waterfall in Scotland. Many unicorns come from Scotland, we´re national animals of Scotland, after all. Actually, I still live in Scotland. I do travel across Europe from time to time, but Scotland is my home, so I always return there.
Do You Have Any Future Plans?
Future? So typical for a human to ask about future! Don’t you know the present moment is the greatest gift life can give you? That´s why it´s called the present. You should do some mindfulness, like watching the trees in a forest and feel the summer wind on your skin.
All right, I do think about the future from time to time. Sometimes it scares me; are there still going to be forests for unicorns to live in? Will the sun still shine and will there still be rainbows to chase?
Like I mentioned, I´m not sure if I want any offspring of my own, unicorn babies, you know. It´s also because I´m worried about the future of unicorns; will there still be place for us in the future world? I hope there will.
I´d like to find a mate at some point. If I´ll find a mate of my own, I probably won’t be living with my family anymore. I hope we can live close to each other, though, because my family is very important to me. But I´d like to have a mate of my own, a true love.
I would very much like to visit China. I know it´s far away, and it would take more than a week to get there. Yes, of course by hoof. I´d like to meet Chinese unicorns, I’ve heard they´re fascinating creatures.
I wish I can keep eating chocolate cupcakes in the future. I know the nice girl who works in the bakery will die long before me, and I don’t know who´s going to get me cupcakes when she´s gone. But I´m sure cupcakes will find me, one way or another. When there´s a unicorn, there´s a way.
Thank You So Much For Your Time, Hippolyta.
You´re welcome. Time is on my side, after all, even though it feels like it just flies. If you ever want to ask something else, or need to talk to me for some reason, you´ll find me. Just go to a forest on a sunny day, and think about unicorns. If not me, another unicorn is just around a tree, as long as your heart is pure and you live truthfully.
So, what did you think about the interview with Hippolyta? I hope her story helped clarify how do unicorns live.
