A Table Fable...

Once upon a time, the fair maiden, Bee, did wander through
the veritable wonderland called TJ Maxx & More...'twas truly
a smorgasbord to behold!
When Bee chanced upon this shining silvery table, she was at once
smitten...and vexed! She could not deny that its glimmer stirred her
inner badger! And yet...it be made of metal...cold and sterile...and
came perilously close to being...dun, dun, duuuuuuuuuuuuuunnn...
modern! **SHOCK!**HORROR!**

With the convincing of several elves, a variety of woodland creatures
and a few talking trees, she bought the sparkly table from the little
old man who seemed nice enough...but after he charged her nearly
10% in sales tax...the spell was broken and she could see he was
really a hideous bridge troll! Bee clutched her purchse to her ample
bosom and fled outside, where her carriage driver did await her!

Bee quickly found the perfect place for her new treasure...it seemed
to have been made just for her castle! Her sister, the lithe, angelically
beautiful and modest, princess M sang its praises, waxed lyrical
and snapped a few shots with the mystical pink picture making
device! M rhapsodized over its shape...its sheen...and its sassy
little legs!

Uh, hem...I mean, alas...Bee doth appear to be clinging to the vines on
indecision that bind...

Come on! How cute is that table!!! Should it be KEPT, or what???!!!

Now this, on the other hand, is naughty from the word go!
And should be banished to a land of no fleece blankies
or tortilla chips!!
