We all remember the bedtime stories of our childhoods..
the shoe fits Cinderella ..
the frog turns into a prince..
sleeping beauty is awakened with a kiss.
Once upon a time and then
they lived happily ever after.
the stuff of dreams..
The problem is fairy tales don't come true.
It's the other stories..
the one that begin with dark and stormy nights
and end in the unspeakable..
it's the nightmares that always seem to become reality..
The person who invented the phrase
"happily ever after"
should have his ass kicked so hard..
Once upon a time..
happily ever after..
the stories we tell are the stuff of dreams.
Fairy tales don't come true.
Reality is much stormier..
it's so much more interesting
than living happily ever after...
