Here is my first short story (and the first post of this blog)! This blog will be a collection of anything remotely literary--stories, poems, comics, really anything using the English language (oh wait, there's some Yiddish in this first one...)--for your reading pleasure. I'll be keeping it light, funny, and sarcastic, with a hint of good ol' cynicism. My goal is to make a post once per week, so add reading this blog to your schedule! This first story is a re-imagining of a classic fairly tale. Enjoy!
