I didn’t pass the princess test

October 7th, 2005 · No Comments

A few weeks ago we spent the night with friends. They let us use their spare room which features some furniture and a toy kitchen set. Ted and I slept on the air mattress on the floor. In the morning, while we were packing, I discovered an entire pile of peas beneath my side of the mattress.

I had no idea. No bruises either.

Yes, they are plastic peas. And I only slept on one mattress, not a pile of twenty. Still, I remembered the fairy tale – the German version I read to the girls, a gift from friends – and realized I must not be a princess.

So I failed the test. But it’s okay.
