A Fairy Tale...
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 setup 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 a repast of lightly
sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce,
she chuckled to herself and thought ... I don't think so.
