Fractured Fairy Tale

The gist:
she got kissed.

Bibbidi bobbidi boo, she wished.
(Shoe fit. She wore it.)

Hard to resist zealous prince.
Dismissed jealous sisters hiss.

Royal romantic tryst.

Happily ever after wedded bliss.

She, the bee’s knees
he aimed to please.

………….Plot twist:
………….he missed.


It’s Quadrille time at dVerse again! (My favorite.)
Grace gives us a great word today. Head over to play!

    I thought I was the only one to say “bibbidi bobbedi boo” today. I work with toddlers and it just slipped out of my mouth while I was putting on their bibs for lunch. 🙂
