"No! She thought..this cannot be so!"
It appeared that the missing Princess who lost these shoes
in the middle of the enchanted forest,
didn't know if she was COMING or GOING!:
"Was the Princess confused as to her direction in life?"
"Was Princess life too stressful for her so she twirled in opposite directions and got all twisted up?"
"Where do you think the Princess who lost these shoes is?"
and even WORSE....
the Maiden began to really worry:
"What if the Princess has had an evil spell put on her and she has been changed into something or someone ELSE???"
The Maiden looked around the enchanted forest for clues.
And she spied the most beautiful butterfly on a nearby branch:
But the butterfly giggled just like a butterfly giggles,
and softly flittered away.
Or, "Oh Mon Deux!" (said the Maiden who only had two years of high school French, therefore could not think anything else in French).."could the Princess of the Missing Shoes
have been turned into THIS (by an evil WITCH?)":
The Maiden saw a puddle on the side of the road then.
And she was AMAZED
to see little fish swimming in the PUDDLE!
Surely one of them was the Princess of the Missing Shoes...
because HOW ON EARTH did these fish end up in a puddle???:
"Are you a Princess of the Missing Shoes?"
none of them answered her.
(Which obviously means either the fish were stuck up
or they didn't understand English.)
Either way, it didn't solve the mystery.
Just then, the Maiden heard some tapping in the Enchanted Forest.
"Perhaps that is the Princess of the Missing Shoes trying to communicate with me!", she exitedly exclaimed.
She looked everywhere to find the source of the sound.
Finally, the Mainden saw what creature was tapping:
Or WAS it?
Was THIS the Princess of the Missing Shoes???
I mean, look at that gorgeous red crown...it was certainly FIT for a Princess!!
But the bird quit tapping and flew away.
Surely if the bird WAS the Princess of the Missing Shoes, she would have stayed and kept trying to tap out a message to get rescued by the Knight or the Maiden.
Wouldn't you think?
And, for some reason, the Knight wasn't even concerned about the Maiden and her frantic search for the Princess of the Missing Shoes....
In fact, instead, ...the Knight kept repeating to the Maiden:
"Don't TOUCH those shoes...who knows where they've BEEN??"
"And why on earth are you taking photos of them?"
Non-blogging Knights just don't get it sometimes.
But it was getting dark by this time in the enchanged forest.
Besides, the Maiden had to get home (to do maidenly things)
the Knight had to get home (to do whatever Knights do).
It was time to get back in the carriage and do just that.
The Maiden was very sad that she could not find
the Princess of the Missing Shoes.
The Knight continued to not give a shit.
So, for the MAIDEN's SAKE----(ignore the Knight!)
whatever you do....
if you see any critters you think might be
the cursed Princess of the Missing Shoes in the woods....
please have her get in touch with the Maiden immediately
(through my blog of course)...
so the Maiden can tell the Princess of the Missing Shoes
exactly where they are.
This is most important, because after a hard winter in the U.P. of Michigan,
her sparkly slippers
are going to be
in pretty bad shape....
a deer might be sporting them for attention.
And just try and explain THAT to a U.P. Hunter on November 15th!!
