Prince Charming

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 think so.
