Kisses and Losses

A Facebook status update of a friend read: In order to get to your Prince Charming, you have to kiss a lot of toads.
My response:

There seems to a certain structure when it comes to princes;
They deem it necessary to don disguises.
For odd, unfathomable reasons,
The skin of a toad is preferred.
If you are really a prince, why hide in a toad's skin?
And of all the creatures in the world, why choose to be a toad?
The Frog-Prince started this trend, I believe.
Then Beauty came with her Beast.
Damsels had to loss stuff in order to catch the Prince's attention.
Cinderella lost her gleaming glass slipper,
Into a deep trance, Sleeping Beauty fell,
Rapunzel became a baldy,
And Little Mermaid lost her magnificent tail.
Delving in.
Can we just skip the kissing of toads?
And losing property or bodily parts?
Get right to the Charming Prince?
Please?

if it was all about some documented code then no one would have to bother about even one toad. life just makes it interesting. you win some, you loose some. and you just can't always tell when, how, why, what, etc.

for me the mystry adds fun though.
