THE STEPSISTER SPEAKS OUT
It isn’t easy being the ugly stepsister. Everybody always feels sorry for poor little Cinderella, but what about me? I deserve a little
sympathy too. Does MY fairy godmother ever show up with a wand? Does the prince ever dance with me at the ball? Not on your life.
The best I can ever hope for with MY pumpkins is a decent piece of pie. And as for rats, well – rats are rats! I never saw one yet that
turned into a coachman.
If you ask me, Cinderella is weird. Certainly she isn’t normal. Besides the fact that she has naturally curly hair and wears size 4 1/2
shoes, she is so good natured that it’s down right sickening. If you had to dust and sweep and clean all day long, would you go around
singing with the birds? Of course you wouldn’t.
And worse of all – I diet, I exercise, I get a perm and a facial and a manicure, AND a blue velvet designer label gown. I mean, I was
READY! Princey, I thought to myself, here 1 come!
And what happens? Little Cindy, who has never seen the inside of a health club in her life and doesn’t kow the calorie difference
between a carrot and a chocolate éclair, whips together a dress out of some old curtains from Kmart, waltzes off to the ball and snags
IT ISN’T FAIR
