Do You Believe In Fairy Tales?


I must reach my tower before Nanny realises
 I've been out clubbing all night
Once a upon a time, in a little village town there lived a young lady who was clever and funny and very pretty.  Nearby in old London town lived a lanky young prince who was very handsome and equally witty.  One day he decided he would read some books at St Andrews, way north in Edinburgh town.  Well, of course their paths were bound to cross.   Wait a minute, this isn't a fairy tale.  There's an air of excitement across the land, and unless your name is Sleeping Beauty, you may have missed it - this wee announcement! Everyone else, no excuses! *sound the trumpets*  All this talk of blossoming love and the royal wedding has got me' dreaming of fairy tales!  
What do I love about fairy tales?
Sugar n spice and all things are really nice,
Fluffy cotton tree tops  on pink frosted trunks,
Pretty princesses yearning to be found,
Fairy godmothers with magical wands,
Handsome Princes riding to your rescue,
Turretted castles in faraway places,
Beautiful gowns with matching crowns!
Eternal love = 4 EVA bliss
Passionate embraces, 
Loving kiss 
Happily ever after

A/N: I do love a good wedding! And, in case you're looking for everlasting love, the word is that at St Andrews, one in ten of their students find their future partners. *deep sigh*

  1. I do believe in fairy tales, and I'm also a hopeless romantic, always trying to fix people up.

  2. Hi Talai!

    Yes I do, with the following provisos:

    a) Not every prince wears a crown
    b) Not every princess needs rescuing
    c) Not every witch/dragon/ogre/giant is recognisable as such
    d) Happily ever after, takes hard work and determination every day, and forever is a long long time!

  4. Fairy tales are a matter of interpretation. I believe they exist but are less glittery and flashy as we would like them to be.

    Melissa, good point, its our own interpretation of what a fairy tale is.
