After prince charming married the rag-princess, his life didn´t turn out “happy ever after”. It became quite the opposite, because a princess, who is always in the middle of recycling projects, can drive a modern prince half insane…….
“Dear princess,”, prince charming says. “When will dinner be served?”
“I don´t know. Ask the servants!” she answers.
His feet scratch bashful on the floor. “We don´t have any. I´m a modern prince!”
“Oh… Well, in THAT case make yourself some sandwiches. I´m busy!”
He gives her a beseeching look. “Busy with something much more important than serving your beloved husband a good dinner?”
“Much more important. I´m in the middle of a new, exiting recycling-project!”
“There is no project!” growls prince charming. “All I can see is a huge, ugly pile of rags on our dining table instead of food!”
“I hope you don´t mean my precious textile fragments?” the princess asks confused.
“No. I mean those RAGS on the table….We really need a much bigger garbage can!”
“Nonsens, garbage can!” the princess yells. “What we need is another armoire for my treasure-collection…..That corner over there would be great…..”
“That corner is mine! It´s reserved for my throne! Now look, why don´t you just go to that sewing-cave I arranged down in the dungeons for you?”
“The dungeons are dark. And much to small. I can not even turn around in there!” The princess whines.
Prinz charming goes downstairs to the dungeons, opens the door to his wifes 60 yards sewing-cave, avoids a collapsing stack of vintage fabrics at the last moment and closes the door hasty again.
He runs up the dungeon-stairs quite angry.
“Why can´t you go to the next fancy boutique and buy yourself some nice, overpriced clothing with a colored label on it, like all the other princesses do?”
“Because I´m a RAG-princess, remember? I even made my own wedding gown !”
“Yes…..THAT I remember!” moans the prince.
He rolls his eyes, turns his back on her and disappears, wherever moderns princes vanish to, if they are really frustrated.
And what does our rag-princess do? Sits down in front of her sewing machine and creates THIS jacket!
