Tell Me A Story (Jul 28 2009) ------------------------------------------------- "Tell me a story," says the ghost in my bed. I'm used to it. So, I pull a book from the shelf, open the pages, and begin to read. "I've heard this before," says the ghost. The ghost has heard them all. I close the book and make up a story about dragons, castles, maidens, and knights. But this time, the maidens ate dragons and the castles floated in the air. "What about the knights?" asked the ghost. "They lived happily ever after," I said. The ghost smiled, faded into nothing, and I was finally able to go to sleep. ------------------------------------------------- © 2005-2017 Laurence Simon
