How A Hose Slayed The Dragon

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Today... Charlie is a brave knight!
A brave knight in an 80's tank top.

His quest?

To slay the dragon with his sword!
Or... water the tree with the garden hose.

(Oops! Mommy got a little too close to the knight and his sword.)

Wait- whats this?

The knight has a sidekick!
A crazy haired, laughing hysterically, slightly older sibling- wearing some kind of pop music forcefield!?

Surely if the knight's sword doesn't slay the dragon- Justin Bieber will.

It seems that the sidekick is immune to the powers of the sharp blade!


She is invincible!!


It must be the Bieber.

"Here, give ME that sword!", she says to the knight. "I'll show you how its done!"

Together, the knight and his sidekick (who has clearly stolen the spotlight), run to the castle!

And they attack.

Have you ever seen such a happy attack?
Geez, kid, you could have least put on your mid-tantrum face.


Its done.

The dragon has been slayed.

But the knight's job wasn't yet finished.

He had one more thing left to do.

Rescue the princess! Of course.

"My hero!", she shouted!
Or, muttered in a Roseanne sort of manner.

They then traveled all the way across the lawn, where the princess was safely returned to her father the king.

And as the sun sets, warm cookies and milk were served to the noble siblings as a reward for thier brave adventures.

The End.

This made me LOL more than once and uuhhhh, is it possible for you to turn this into a children's book for my kids. I just know they'd love the story as much as I did!
