The Relief of Prince Charming

The Relief of Prince Charming by Cheryl Marlene

When I was 12, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I knew instinctively what I wanted: Prince Charming on his white steed whisking me away. This response always got a laugh. Now when I think of my reply, as a grownup, I instinctively get what I didn’t understand then. I … Read more
