Once upon a time ago, in a kingdom far far away, a knight in shining armor approached the door to my little cottage in the wood. He promised me gold, servants, and happiness ever after. He said he had keys to the kingdom.

My eyes blinked rapidly, my cheeks flushed, my knees felt week, and butterflies erupted in my stomach. In a voice softer than a whisper, I said "no" and felt my heart begin to race. Closing the door on the shining knight, I returned to the kitchen and made supper for my husband.

A true story, albeit it romanticized.
