too many words by laura lemay

unhappily ever after

On the way to my hair appointment today I passed a man with a cute little blonde girl perched on his shoulders. And I overheard the following conversation:

Man: And then because of the evil wizard’s curse they all had to get jobs working for other people. And they were all very unhappy forever and ever, every one of them.
Girl: That’s a very sad story, daddy.
Man: Yes it is.
