Once upon a time, there was a young woman in love. Granted, this happens frequently in life, and many, many women and men fall in love. But this story isn’t about them. This is about one particular young woman. Let’s call her… Ophelia. That’s a good name, don’t you think?
This beautiful, charming, vivacious, awesome, etc. woman was told by her beloved that he would meet her at the enchanted oasis where they first met. She put on a new dress, and put her soft hair up, and donned some new makeup so that she could present to him a pleasing visual of herself. Normally, she wouldn’t bother, and would say screw it, throw on some jeans, a tee-shirt, and some chapstick and call it a day.
Now, this young woman’s beloved did not specify a time that he would meet her. He just said that he’d be there, but not to wait for him past nightfall. She offered to him her GPS and an extra map in case he needed help finding their special place again, to which he replied “Nah babe, I’ve got this.” She sighed and thought to herself “Pffft… men, they never stop for directions” and thus leaned against a tree as she waited, daydreaming about the happy life she could have with him.
Minutes passed by slowly, turning into hours. She watched as the sun moved across the sky, staring up at the clouds, and avoiding any birds that tried to crap on her. (Birds like to do that, you know.) Before she knew it, she realized that the sun was setting, and her beloved had warned her not to wait for him past nightfall. Shaking with heart wrenching sobs, she took down her hair, letting it flow free around her, and let her tears mess up her makeup. As she cried, a friendly little bird (the non-crapping-on-people type) flew down and landed upon her finger. “My sweet lady, why do you weep?” it chirped. Her face red and streaked black, she looked tearfully at the tiny bird and proclaimed “Little friend, I weep because my beloved was supposed to meet me at our special oasis where we first met. He told me to wait for him but not past nightfall. He assured me he didn’t need my GPS or my map to help him find the place. Tiny bird, I have sat here and waited all day, and night is now upon me.”
The little creature let out a sad little whistle, and was about to comfort the lovely young woman, when she suddenly burst out in an exasperated sob “PLUS I JUST REALIZED I’M AT THE WRONG DAMN OASIS AND I DIDN’T BRING MY CELL PHONE!”
The little bird sat thoughtfully for a moment, looking at her. Quietly he spoke at last “My lady, that is indeed a most unfortunate circumstance. I am bereaved to point out another misfortune. You are clearly insane, as we birds don’t speak in reality.” The tiny bird then spread its little wings, dumped a crap on her hand, and daintily took off in flight.
The morals of the story: Don’t talk to animals, don’t forget your cell phones, never assume it’s just the men who don’t know anything, and always carry extra makeup in case another prince charming comes along. 😀
