because surely those glass slippers were damned uncomfortable


if i'd  told the tale,
cinderella's shoes would've been made of enchanted flowers,
and when she saw those babies on her feet,
she would so understand that she didn't need prince charming to help her get away.
she would suddenly see the magic in her own two feet and off she would go.

  3. Wonderful; I never understood the appeal of glass slippers, or princes; Cindy seemed like she was dumbing down for that one. Every time I picture her now, she will be wearing enchanted flowers.

  6. Brilliant and beautiful -- I pinned it to my Pinterest "My Friend's Blogs" board with the admonition to read the full post. It's too good to be missed.

  8. i often wonder why, in fairy tales, women "suffer" and must be rescued.
