Time for Momo

MOMO: 3 very different meanings of the word taken from the on-line ‘urban dictionary’: Japanese word for “peaches”. / The quintessential form of a woman, goddess, the perfect model of cuteness and innocence. Irresistable with the power to melt ones heart. / A generic insult used to describe one who is irritating, annoying, or an idiot.   The novel of this name was given to me by a friend recently.  (Thank you, and you know who you are!). It is a fantasy story by Michael Ende, about a remarkable child who tries to bring back stolen time to the people whose minds have been swayed by The Men In Grey to deposit as much ‘time’ in their Timesavings Bank for “later use”.
