Living in a fairy tale is not quite what I thought it would be...

You know how in Disney movies and many fairytales there is a princess (or maiden of some sort) who can sing beautifully? She has a soaring soprano that can lure the men-on-white-horses from all across the land. She can dance too, and has a waist that would really only be acceptable in the days of corsets.

That's not the point though. The point is that she sings beautifully, and her voice echoes across the hills. I enjoyed the romance of the story, the siren nature of the song... it never occurred to me to pity any neighbours she may have had. Who knows, maybe there were people in the area just trying to write a paper. Maybe she was distracting them.

Maybe they would really rather that she go to one of the practice rooms that is open until 1am and rehearse her aria there instead of in the dorms.

I mean... I'm just trying to take into consideration the other people in the fairytales, you know?


  1. LOL Cute blog!!! Visiting from SITs! ;)

  2. Lol! Why am I thinking this is really an analogy for a real life scenario?!

  3. Yeah, fairy tale life isn't what it's cracked up to be. Do you ever notice that they don't eat? I couldn 't live like that. ;) ;) Been meaning to come by and thank you for stopping by my blog. I blame my kiddos. They make me crazy. Hope you are doing well!
