I received this as an email in 2003.
It’s so good, it bears repeating.
This is the fairy tale that we should have been reading as little girls!
(My hubby is the exception.)
Once upon a time in a 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 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. Then my sweet, we can marry and setup housekeeping in your castle, with my mother. There you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.
as the princess dined sumptuously
on a repast of lightly sauted frog legs,
seasoned in a white wine cream sauce with basil and garlic,
she chuckled and thought to herself…..
I don’t f***ing think so!
Hope the frog was a narcissist…it would be a just ending.
