Stir



Princess and the Pea is my illustration for this week's Illustration Friday topic 'stir'.

* * *

The queen knew only a true princess would be so sensitive to stir all night.

The next day, the handsome prince asked the princess to marry him. Unfortunately for him, she had her super cranky pants on from having no sleep the night before. So she shoved the pea up his nose and fled the castle, never to be seen again.

Sadly, the prince never found true love and had to live with his mother until she finally kicked the bucket at a ripe old age of 114. And the pea? It was never, ever put into a museum silly! Nobody wants to look at a shriveled pea slimed in lonely prince booger! Rumor has it, that the pea was slipped into Thursday night's pea and ham soup. Let's hope it wasn't yours.

That's how the story goes in our house.
