Sleeping Beauty - version #2

by

You know the story. Beautiful princess, evil fairy, curse, spinning wheel, ouch!, sleep for 100 years.

Fast forward. Castle overgrown; handsome prince plus entourage.

Hero fights through foliage, spies castle, illegally breaks in and beholds courtiers asleep. Like a predator he enters the princess's bedroom and spies the beauty on her bed asleep. He kisses her.

Now being a 21st century woman, she’s having none of that. Her hand shoots into her purse and grabs a canister and Prince Charming gets a faceful of mace. Mail order from Amazon - you didn’t really think she slept for 100 years did you?

    The prince needs to steer clear of this chick!
