Getting to seven

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhat was she expecting, asking such a stupid question. Who’s the fairest?

Of course I’m not going to say her, The Queen, especially since she’s had all that Botox.

Not that she smiled anyway.

I was brought up to not to lie and I’m not going to start now.

Now Snow White’s not around, I have less people to choose from, but even Grumpy’s prettier.

“On pain of death,” the Queen threatened, clearly forgetting that I’m a mirror. I don’t have feelings. Shatter my glass and it only means that she can’t look at me… which between you and I wouldn’t be a bad thing.

The Prince is taking his time. He’s supposed to wake her up – Snow White, not the Queen. Ew, what a horrible thought.

That would round off the fairy tale nicely, but he’s forgotten his sat nav and is doing circuits round the M25. Thinks he’s Lewis Hamilton or that Button fellow.

Still, he’ll get here soon enough, kiss Snow White and she’ll come back, get rid of the Queen then we can have decent conversations like we used to, or play that game where you have to name all the dwarves – she might even get to seven this time.
