Nothing so mundane as a boring princess for me...well, I will be BUT I won't be an ordinary princess.
I'm going to be a liberalistic, determined-to-be-emancipated bored one...
so, what I am going to do, (as the boring journey over to the kingdom is being planned), while being entertained by a juggler and appearing demure and bored, is furiously plot my escape.
I will stash clothes at a strategic place in the woods and when the time is right I will jump from my very boring litter, steal away into the woods, evade the worried knights who search futilely (fighting errant dragons all the while - I'll evade those too), get the clothes, chop my hair off with my handy dagger (troll protection you know, Father insists on it...)
Into SIR REALLYAPRIN.
And go fight!
And win fame and glory!
And laugh at my bored sisterhood as I knock down all those absurd men from their horses...
that's the plan!
See you there poor unsuspecting fellows...
