Once upon a time…
Here we go again with that trite line
Once upon a time in a land far…
Oh, please… seriously? For God’s sake, make it real.
Ok, fine… this chick in the good ol’ US of A…
I like “Princess” better… this priceless princess… that works.

Uh… sorry. Keep going. I’ll shut up.
Fine. Thank you.

Then, don’t read it…
La la la la la… not listening.
