Storytime With Grace

Grace has been using her “Story Cubes” to practice her storytelling skills.  Basically they’re dice with images on the sides: you roll them and try to make a story out of whatever random images they end up landing on.

She asked me to take turns with her, and I came up with a long and involved (and largely plagiarized) “fairy tale,” and then it was her turn.  She rolled a little girl, a mirror and a frog, and came up with this gem:

“Once upon a time, there was a little girl who had a magic mirror.  One day an evil old witch came and turned her into a frog.  When she looked in the mirror, she still saw her old reflection.  From then on, she was a frog, but she never noticed.”

Game over, we have a winner.  I’m still trying to decide whether that story is funny or profound.  Maybe a little of both.
