“Promise me that you will always treat me like a princess,” she asked, no, she begged him, with hope in her dreamy eyes.
“I am really more of an anti-monarchist,” he replied and shot her, a curious mix of sadness and contempt displayed around his mouth.

Epic story :)
Once upon a time, there was a prince who was not too handsome. He asked a beautiful princess to marry him. She said no.
And the prince lived happily ever after. And went fishing, and raced cars, and played video games, and ate what he wanted and when he wanted, and watched tv and travelled and had a wonderful life.
This is the happiest story I have ever read!
Children should be brought up listening to stories like these instead of medieval fairy tales with outdated gender stereotypes.
Hello, I stumbled upon your site as I was googling about suicide – enjoyed reading your related piece and do agree with you. And no I am not suicidal. Interestingly I do live in wonderful Oregon, so good Oregon, and in the especially good Portland, where ending one’s life due to terminal illness is possible – you may have read recently about the young woman who relocated here from San Francisco so she could have assisted ending of her life as she was dying of brain cancer. Oh how I envy your lifestyle of travel and exploration. Well, put on your list Portland, OR and definitely watch Portlandia – a hilarious show, a spoof. http://www.ifc.com/shows/portlandia Warm wishes, Susan

This is uncanny! The exact same thing happened to me too!
Good! We’re putting an end to monarchies, one by one.
She was not asking for much. The cashier in the supermarket calls me princess, and I live in a 110 year old Republic.
Well, if you shop at Corte Inglés… :P
When I lived in London, I was really shocked about cashiers calling me “love”.
And in South America, many people in shops or at markets addressed me as “joven”, although I was already 40 years old.
Our world is full of kindness :)
And now we know that cashiers are the foundation of reactionary monarchist parties.
Maybe that’s why they always have these magazines with royal families next to the check-out. If you pick one up and start talking to the cashier about it, she will invite you to the next secret meeting.
Well, I guess I’ll meet plenty of monarchists on my upcoming walk to some of Bavaria’s royal castles: https://andreasmoser.blog/2020/06/27/birthday-hike-2020/
Arghhhh. Don’t spoil the kindness for me :P I’m 300% anti-monarchist.
I don’t even go to Burger King.
😂😂 It’s not very healthy anyways. Have a great royal hike (and the rest we should not mention ;)… Be happy and free :D
