Finding Your Prince Charming
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful Princess, awaiting her Prince Charming.
 After reading the Find Your Prince self-help book, she tried the Sleeping Beauty, the Snow White, and even the Cinderella. 
 Eventually, she decided to use her long hair as she attempted the Rapunzel.
 Sitting in her tower, with her golden plait fluttering out of the window, she felt a tug.
 “Yes! Finally, my Prince is coming!”
 More pulling followed by the grunt of her beloved-to-be as he hoisted himself up.
 Alas, no Prince, just the toothless Palace window cleaner!
 No happily ever after, just yet! 

My interactive peeps!
