Bedtime stories, fairies and other such nonsense.

Do you ever wish life was like a Bed Time story? The whole thing, laid out before you, beginning, middle, and most importantly a Happy Ending. An obviously evil villain, a knight in shining armor to save the day, and The All Live Happily Ever After. The End.

But life is not a bed time story - you never know how its going to end, and sometimes the ending isn't happy. In fact, sometimes, it's just downright miserable. And sometimes the villain isn't obvious. Sometimes, you are the villain in your own life. And the knight in shining armor doesn't always appear in the nick of time. Sometimes, he doesn't appear at all. Or maybe it's really someone else, just posing as your knight.

But then, maybe the best thing about life is that it's not a bedtime story. Would it be any fun at all if you knew how it was going to end? Even if it IS a happy ending.
