What Women Want...Read on.....

What women on.....

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom.

The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question.

Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, If after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death. The question was: What do women really want?

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, He accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone:
The princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester.

He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.
Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer.

But the price would be high as the witch was famous through out the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch.

She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table,And Arthur's closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified.

She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, Smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.

He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden,
But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.

He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life.

And the preservation of the Round Table.
Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered.

Arthur's question thus: "What a woman really wants?

She said, " Is to be in charge of her own life."

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth.
And that Arthur's life would be spared.
And so it was.

The neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.

The honeymoon hour approached and,
Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom.

But, what a sight awaited him.
The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed.

The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened.

The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth be her horrible and deformed self only half the time.

And the beautiful maiden the other half.
" Which would you prefer? She asked him."Beautiful during the day .... or at night ?"

Lancelot wonder about the difficulty.
During the day he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends,
But at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch!

Would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day?

But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous, intimate moments with?

(If you are a man reading this...) What would YOUR choice be?

(If you are a woman reading this ) What would YOUR MAN'S choice be?

What Lancelot chose, is given below:
BUT... make YOUR choice before you scroll down below... OKAY?


Noble Lancelot, knowing the answer the witch gave Arthur to his question,He said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.

Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time.

Because, he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.
Now... what is the moral to this story?

The moral is...
1) There is witch in every woman no matter how beautiful she is!
2) If you don't let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly.

So, always remember:

Hi Lindy - Jackson sends a purr and a flurry of hair (he's moulting)! He's getting as fat as a pig and the vet is going to be soooooooooo angry with us - but how on earth can you put a cat on a diet?

especially when he's his mummy's baby, a special boy, and so cuddly-wuddly dinkums den! lol
