Story Time....

Ok children gather round. Today's story is a cautionary tale for you kids. Its called; THE GIRL WHO CRIED CONTRACTIONS.
Once there was a beautiful maiden who lived in a magical forest of enchantment. She lived there with her husband, a not so beautiful maiden. More of a semi-handsome man. They were very happy and expecting a baby. The maiden was greatly swolen with child which made it very difficult for her to walk about the forest. One day she was all alone while her husband was working at Lowes Castle. it was then that her baby had a sneaky plan; pretend to be ready to come out but at the last second decide to stay a while longer. So the fair maiden felt the pains of birth and assumed it was time to deliver. She ran to ye old apothacary and wizard, Dr. Merlin, to have the child. But alas the tricky baby was only fooling the people and was not ready to be born just yet. The girl was sent waddling home, dejected and still heavy with baby. Again a few days later the baby made a second fake entry into the world only to drop out (or in this case not drop) and return into the spacious belly of its mother. By this time many of the maidens family and friends were beggining to wonder if she was really having a baby or was just toying with their emotions. I mean come on a guy wants to be an uncle. Anyways through no fault of her own and by pure deciet of the tricky fetus many of the family got angry at the maiden for "crying contractions". Of course this was not the maidens fault the baby was simply being a sly fox but alas the girl was stuck with the title of-faker. The third time the baby decided to have a faux-birth many were sceptical, if not critical. Sir Race, the maidens brother (and a mighty fine looking, talented, well liked knight as the legend goes) was not fooled at all. "Ten Golden Coins i will bet thee that this baby will not come and our dear sister is fooling us again" said Sir Race (again, quite handsome) to his man-servant Squire Chantz (not so good looking or well liked). Many were skeptical that the baby would ever come. And so it was that the WHOLE FAMILY waited for the little trickster to be born....and praying that when it did finally come into the world it resembled Mighty Uncle Race.

This is from Uncle Paul. I was amazed as I read the story of the Princess of how much Sir Race resembled King Paul- the biggest man in the kingdom. (At least the handsome part.) And think about it ---- there is soooooo much more of me to be handsome. Enjoyed the story!!
