Today's story-time...

This is the fairy tale that should have been read to us when
we were little:

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' 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 prepare 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 sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine
and onion cream sauce, she chuckled and thought to herself:

"I don't fucking think so."

I've heard this joke ... still funny! ;-)

Love the picture. I have a lovely gold frog pendant from my dad many years ago - it was to hold me over until my worthy prince showed up.
