Once upon a time...

Once upon a time there was this girl with lovely golden locks a plenty, or maybe this is the one with the red cape...
no matter,
whom climbed up this beanstalk on the flowing hair of another,
to visit her ailing Grandmother.
Cinderella and the Goose Girl were there too,
(Of course she was wearing her slippers)
as everyone wants to see the house that jack built
(no way to blow this ol' house down).

It appears that I am digressing a bit,
no matter.

So she shows up to visit Grandma with locks, cream cheese and bagels
-actually she would have preferred a BLT but this is not a story about the "Three Little Pigs".
Grandma's dentures either needed a realigning or a file for those eye teeth
'Grandma, what an over abundance of teeth you have', said she.
'Grandma, who did your last manicure?'
You know the rest of the story.
The 3 bears ended up devouring the left-over bagels (bet you thought I was going to say something else).
