Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess scullery writer who went for a walk through the forest took her live-in handyman to the hospital for pain and swelling in his ankle.

Blah-Blah-Blah

After encountering ogres the emergency room and wolves surgeons and evil queens nurses, she found her way back home (with her live-in handyman).

The seven dwarfs and three little pigs Recuperation met them and hung around for ten days.

Then the party was over it was finally time for the stitches to come out.

And they lived happily ever after :)

That's my story, and I'm sticking with it.

Ha! My sister is a nurse and she can vouch for those evil queen nurses! They are all over the place spreading their reign.

As long as it has the HEA, everything is good.

Jayne said...

Happy Ever After sounds good to me. Glad you got there! :)

Elspeth Antonelli said...

The lesson? Watch where you step. Also, try to stay away from ogres and wolves. I'm glad you got to 'happily ever after'.

Mason Canyon said...

Sounds like a great story to me, especially the ending. Glad everything is going well.

Aubrie - LOL! I meant no disrespect to nurses in general - but some do take it a bit far. All for the patient's good ... of course.

Terry - HEA is wonderful.

Jayne - Me, too!

Elspeth - Sometimes the ogres are a might much.

Mason - Thanks!

Ann - Yes, let's!

Love those happy endings!

Talli Roland said...

Love this, Carol! Made me smile. I like the happy ending!

Angela said...

Und wenn sie nicht gestorben sind, dann leben sie noch heute, is the HEA in German. Oh, and I do believe in wishful thinking! All will be well (waving of magic wand)!

Joanne said...

I think we can all relate to this with some hospital tale or another. Glad for the happy endings, always :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Karen & Talli - More members for the Happy Ending Club!

Angela - Keep waving your magic wand. It's a good thing.

Joanne - I think you're right :)

Yay! I'm so glad everything is getting back to normal for you and hubby. I'm sure he's glad to get those itchy stitches out...

I'm not usually one for happily ever afters, but given your harrowing escape from the evil kingdom, this one works for me. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Elizabeth - Very happy. Almost his normal self.

VR - Sometimes happy ever afters are the very best things.

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

I adore strikeouts...they tell such a fascinating story. :)

Glad to hear everything's going well.

Carol Kilgore said...

Kathi - Thanks!

Laura - Right. Can you do strikeouts in comments?

Laura Eno said...

I don't know...
No, I just tried. The comments don't allow the del tag. :(

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks for trying. Maybe Blogger can work on that :)

Helen Ginger said...

Very cute! You lead a fairy tale life, with a lot of cross-outs, of course. The important thing is that your story has a happily ever after.

What a great story to stick to! Thanks for sharing.

Carol Kilgore said...

Oh, Helen. More like a Dr. Seuss or Three Stooges kind of life. But thank you.

You're welcome, Elana. Thanks for reading.

I'd rather light my toenails on fire than be cooped up with a man who's recuperating from anything, especially for ten days. I hope your experience wasn't that bad.

Carol Kilgore said...

I am SO laughing. If I write anything here, I think it's incriminating. I'll just say I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. BTW, I couldn't find the matches.
