All That Glitters...

Post by metalcapatiller » Fri Nov 14, 2014 2:52 am

I tried to assure them that I'd learned my lesson about old women selling things. I don't think they believed me.
Look, it's not my fault. That comb was beautiful. So was the sash.
I'm a princess.
I like pretty things.
And the women looked nothing like the queen. They looked poor, and kind of dumb. They probably just bought their wares from shady people.
I do my best to reassure them as they leave for work. The men look doubtful. I wave them farewell and promise not to buy anything.
Oh look, a woman selling apples.
Such pretty apples.

Why is it that whenever I get "It's a Small World" stuck in my head, I need to sing it loudly and off-key?

That may have to happen... I was looking for another fairy tale. Thank you
