A Fairy Tale

Here's the funny story Jake, my DGS told me......
So princesses kept coming to the castle to marry the prince, but his mother was afraid they weren't real. So she put a pea under the mattresses, and in the morning asked them how they slept. When they said fine, she sent them away. One day, a beautiful princess came to the door, and the prince fell in love with her. He didn't want his mother to send her off, so when his mother went to bed, he crept into the bedroom of the princess, and put a bowling ball under the mattresses. In the morning, the Queen asked the princess how she had slept. The girl said it felt like she spent the night sleeping on a bowling ball. So the prince and princess were married. And that's the story of the princess and the bowling ball.
I howled!! That struck me so funny!! Enjoy! My card today represents Rose RED, otherwise known as Sleeping Beauty. Her hair was black as a raven's wing, her skin as lustrous as pearls, and her lips were like RED roses. I want any fairy tale that involves a long nap, waking up young and beautiful, kissed by a prince, and something RED (chocolate covered cherries would do nicely!)>
