Once upon a time

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (Colorado) there lived a young, thin girl.  She didn't have any wrinkles or gray hairs.  She weighed 100 lbs!!!  She worked very long days as a flight attendant, but she received a PAYCHECK every two weeks!  She had days off, and vacations.
The princess girl went to fun and exciting places (sometimes) and had lots of friends.  She had long, pretty, manicured nails and long, pretty, non-gray, styled hair.  She had nice clothes and cute shoes.  On layovers she could go out to eat and order whatever she wanted.  She NEVER worried about her weight.

Guys flirted with her and thought she was cute.

She met a handsome and witty prince...

They got married, had. 2.2 children, acquired a mini-van and a Golden Retriever and moved to the suburbs.  They were living the American dream.


Except, our cute girl gained weight...and wrinkles...and gray hair.

She wore sweat pants, and clipped her nails short (easier) and didn't do "fun" things anymore.  She went to soccer games, and to ballet and taekwondo class, and helped with homework.  She cooked and cleaned.  Her friends dwindled away.  She still worked very long days, but she no longer got paid for them.  She was on call 24 hours a day.  She wasn't "cute" anymore. 

No one knew her real name anymore.  She was only "Mom".

She loved her life and her family, but she felt something was missing.  Sometimes she felt invisible.

Her fairy godmother waved her magic wand and created a magical land for the girl woman to escape to sometimes.

This magical land was called "Facebook".

Our heroine found many old friends in this magic land.

She found friends from high school, and Florida Express and Continental....They "chatted" and remembered fun times.  She also met many new friends!

The girl woman was happy.

She had missed her friends.  

She was very grateful to her fairy godmother for creating this magic land of escapism.

They all lived happily ever after.

The End.
