Pants are an occupational hazard. Who wants to be in a dress when two little girls come into the library and ask for every book about Cinderella? We scoured the shelves from top to bottom, and sat on the floor between the stacks scanning pages for "authenticity." I wasn't exactly sure what my new friends were looking for, but they soon expanded their search to include any and all princess books. I was excited because I was ready to pull two of my favorites: The Paper Bag Princess and Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters. The two girls quickly dismissed my suggestions; then, I realized their search criteria -- Disney princesses.
So we regrouped & found every Disney princess book available. It took all I had to keep my mouth shut and remember this was not Mini-Me! NO SOAPBOX RANTS IN PUBLIC PLACES...
The girls and their mother checked out their haul of books. They are extremely blessed with voracious appetites for reading and I was blessed to be a part of their quest for princesses.
I still hate|loathe|despise wearing pants, possibly even more now.
