Hazel told this story to us tonight.
"Once upon a time there was a little girl named...Hazel! And one day she went for a walk in the forest without telling her mummy and daddy and she got lost. And there was a bear and a tiger and a wolf coming to eat her. And they ate one arm and then the other arm..."
[muffled laughter from me]
"IT'S NOT FUNNY!!!"
[loud laughing from both parents while she waited very patiently]
"...and then they ate one leg and then her other leg, and then they ate her whole head! And her eyeballs, and then her mouth [said with great relish]. But luckily for her it all grew back. The end."
Fairy tales are just so moralistic these days aren't they?
