Alternative Fairy Tale ...

.. this is what we should have been reading as little girls!

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 her lap and said, "Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me".

"One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper, young Prince that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can satisfy my needs, prepare and serve my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, and forever feel grateful and happy doing so".

That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on lightly sautéed frog legs, delicately seasoned and accompanied by a delicious white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled and thought to herself:


Share with all the princesses you know!
It's sure to brighten their day!
