Tale Weaver/Fairy Tale – #311 – How To Be A Prince Charming – January 21st

Michael has set us a fun challenge this week. Check it out!!

You have been asked to contribute your thoughts to the yet to be published “Fairyland For Dummies” on what is required to be a Prince Charming.


Pasting a smile on his tired shadowed face,
He looked at her choices all over the place.
He hated shopping, both shoes and clothes,
But he had to accompany his betrothed.
Shorter already, it was he needed heels,
Not platforms and glitter for his pants to conceal.
What was she thinking, those five inches more,
Why not the flatties that lay on the floor?
But he loved her dearly, for her funny ways,
As together they’d spend the rest of their days,
He turned a blind eye to her outrageous wig,
And had already said her bum didn’t look big,
And now here they were for the finishing touch,
Shoes for the Big Day, he balked at how much!
He fished out his wallet, the figure far from calming,
Feeling more of a mug than a handsome Prince Charming.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
