Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

"I would prefer that you not hop around on the furniture," said the Princess. "And it might be nice if you got out of the castle once in awhile to slay a dragon or giant or whatever."

The Prince didn't feel like going out and slaying anything. He just felt like running away. But then he reread his book. And it said right there at the end of his story: "They lived happily ever after. The End."

So he stayed in the castle and drove the Princess crazy.
