100 Words: Respect

Those shoe elves and lawn gnomes were regularly acknowledged for their respective skills in the shoe shop, and in the suburban garden. Even Internet Trolls were respected for efficiency with which they derailed conversation. But Elmer, the Yeast Fairy, just wanted some small recognition for his part in helping bread rise and beer ferment. Granted, the fermentation dwarves helped with alcohol production, but Elmer was important, dammit. Why didn’t anyone see that? Sometimes, he wanted to take out a billboard, just to remind the modern world of the important function he performed. Respect. Was that so much to ask for?
