A Springtime Story

Look what happened to my apple tree today while I was slaving over a hot computer.

It reminds me of a story:

Once upon a time in a land far away, four girls were released from the juvenile home where they were never allowed to see the light of day. They heard the story of the brand new Walt Disney World far away in Florida and knew they had to go there. They walked all the way from Michigan to Florida in a snowstorm, uphill all the way. When they arrived, they struggled to think of a way to raise enough money to get into Disney World and buy Mickey Mouse ears with their names embroidered.

While hanging out at a roadside rest area, they heard a man describing a rare and valuable orange tree. This orange tree never has leaves, but it bears oranges in the crooks of the branches, wrapped in masking tape. Only one of these rare trees had ever been spotted in central Florida, but because the treasure found in the oranges is so valuable, orange tree hunters continue to search every inch of the land for one.

Dreaming of finding one of these rare trees, the girls got up from the picnic table and readied themselves to continue walking. Looking up, they noticed a tree without leaves. Could it be? Oranges in the crooks of the branches, held on with masking tape! They picked the oranges, opened them, found tickets to Disney World, and the rest is history.

I don't know any of those girls, it's just a story,

Normal Girl
