20 Jul 2009 – Fairy Tale
Time is not on my side at present but would like to keep my readers guessing what I might be up to! Will update when all the overseas’ visiting guests depart SIN. In the meanwhile, would like to share this 21st century fairy tale 🙂
Once upon a time in the land far away land a beautiful, independent, self assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond.
The frog hopped onto the princess’s lap and said: Elegant lady, I was once a handsome prince until an evil witch cast a spell upon me. One kiss from you and I will turn back into the charming young prince that I am. Then we can marry and set up housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.
That night, as the princess feasted sumptuously on a repast of lightly sauteed frog legs seasoned in white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled to herself and thought:
‘ I don’t think so’
