Modern Day Fairy Tale
My all time favorite ....
The Modern Women's Fairy Tale
Once upon a time, in a land far away,
a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess
happened upon a frog as she sat
contemplating ecological issues
on the shores of an unpolluted pond
in a verdant meadow near her castle.
The frog hopped into the Princess's lap and said:
Sweet lady, I was once a handsome Prince,
until an evil witch cast a spell on me.
One kiss from you, however,
and I will turn back into the dapper young Prince that I am.
Then, my sweet, we can marry
and set up house in my castle
where you can prepare my meals,
clean my clothes, bear my children,
and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.
That night, dining on a repast of lightly sauteed frogs' legs,
the Princess chuckled to herself and thought:
I don't ****ing think so.
