May 31, 2014 - Lily Ponds

I might as well set out the rules right now for lily ponds so that there will be no confusion later on.  Rumor has it in the forest (and I've got a very good source) that there are three stages of magic at a lily pond, depending on the development of the lily pads.  Number one:  If you kiss a frog when there are no lily pads on the pond, you will turn into a frog yourself.  That's why there are so many frogs in the world--too many eager beavers.  Number two:  If you kiss a frog when there are only lily pads on the pond, you will develop cold feet that will last for the rest of your life.  Should you plant a second kiss, your feet will be wet too, although apparently some people are willing to risk that.  Number three:  If you kiss a frog when there are lily pads AND lily flowers on the pond, you may end up with a prince or princess.  What you would do with that prince or princess after getting him or her is entirely up to you, but you had better be prepared for a lot of bowing and scraping.  Still, it would be great fun to hang out with royalty.  At least if it were dinnertime.  And there was a cook nearby.  And no flies, definitely no flies.
