When the King-ish and Reigning Queen Supreme bought a castle in a new kingdom, it had been previously owned by another set of rulers.
They had taken decent care of the castle. Decent enough that it passed the royal inspection by the Royal Home Inspector.
So, with 2 scepters up and presuming that nothing would EVER go wrong (yes, even royalty can put their heads in the sand when it comes to home-ownership and raising children)…
The aforementioned King-ish and Reigning Queen Supreme moved in. Along with their brood and menagerie.
The princesses shared the purple and pink bedroom with matching bathroom.
The princes each got their own bedrooms but shared a neutral colored bathroom with a NASTY olive tiled floor.
The family of Royals settled in to their new castle.
They dealt with the serf mommy. They dealt with the wicked out laws.
Then, once upon a time. A long, long time ago. Well…maybe 2 or 3 months ago, to be exact.
The purple bathroom. The one shared by the princesses.
Burst a pipe. Under the sink.
So the King-ish type person. He decided to investigate. And…during his “investigation”…where he was PRETENDING to know what he was doing…
He noticed that, under the royal vanity…in the purple bathroom…shared by the princesses…
The pipes were HOLY…er…had holes in them. Due to *gasp* RUST!!!
So the King-ish type person….masquerading as a knowlegeable plumber…took apart the rotten pipes from underneath the pretty purple countertop.
Vowing he would fix it.
So…this leads us to Chapter 2.
Once upon a time. A long, long time ago…like yesterday. In our aforementioned broken down kingdom…
A lady in waiting used the pretty purple bathroom.
And this lady in waiting…did NOT know that the King-ish type person…who at one time was masquerading as a knowlegeable plumber…
took apart the plumbing. Did NOT turn the water supply off. Nor…did he EVER show up to fix what he had broke.
after finishing her business on the pretty purple toilet in the pretty purple bathroom shared by the pretty, pretty princesses…
went to do what she was raised to do…
Went to wash her hands after pooping.
And she turned the water on in the sink. Which, had NEVER been turned off by the Wanna-Be Plumber…who sometimes masquerades as the King.
And the water.
It went from the faucet.
Down the drain in the sink.
Into underneath the vanity.
Into the ceiling.
out the chandelier in the royal kitchen.
Onto the table.
And…the Reigning Queen Supreme. She took pictures. Because…
She was going to blog about it!
The King came home from teaching his subjects how to read and write…
And proceeded to destroy…
The pretty purple bathroom.
In the castle.
Now…it is left with a pretty purple toilet. And a pretty purple bathtub. And a pretty purple floor. Well…not so pretty anymore.
And the Queen sighed.
And the Queen decided that Saturday will be spent at Ikea. Amongst all the serfs. Looking for a new vanity that will fit nicely in the pretty purple bathroom. Which, quite obviously…is not so pretty anymore. And…quite obviously…will NOT be staying purple.
In the meantime, while the Queen is at Ikea…
