It went viral – The World’s Shortest Fairy Tale – was all over the Internet.
Bitter or Better?
Hey, Let’s try that again…
“Once upon a time”… a man asked a woman, to marry him.
The woman said, “No. No thank you.”
… and for a while she lived pretty -happily-ever-after…
She went shopping, hiking, went to movies and volunteered at Casa de los Madres and Onebrick…she danced, frequented museums, book readings, drank really great wine, always had a clean house, did yoga three times a week; cooked quinoa, tofu, brownies and triple chocolate chip cookies when she felt like it; she did whatever she wanted, never argued, didn’t get fat, traveled more, had many friends, compatriots, pals, and buddies …
She entertained, went to lectures, bowled, she played and prayed – as needed. She never watched sports ( except the SF Giants, the World Series, the Super Bowl, The Warriors, and Wimbledon) She never wore itchy, cheap lingerie; she had high self-esteem, never cried or yelled…she looked fabulous in sweat pants, designer jeans and Little Black Dresses and was pleasant all the time.
Yawn. All that got old.
She learned that she was missing an important component…she craved and pined for someone to partner with, establish a connection – a union – a much more than mere friendship person.
She wanted to hold hands with, to wake -up -with-in-the morning, to kiss good night and wish ‘sweet dreams’ to every night for the rest of her life.
She Wanted a Prince of a Man:
A perfect partner-in-crime, and play, in plans, to grow old with … And she opened her heart and her eyes and developed a more worldly view. She was always one to share and play well with others…
When, lo and behold: she met a friend. A BoyFriend – and they clicked- they were a Match, they had Chemistry and Harmony… they got along.
He was fun and funny, and sweet and thoughtful. They really enjoyed each other’s company. She had her Date for Life!
They were in love and Friends for Life. They planned, played, and lived happily ever after.
