My Kingdom for a Cookie


This fairy tale has several aspects that make it worth the telling. First, it's good to have dreams and wishes but they can't be allowed to become ends in themselves and thereby stand in the way when something else comes along. Second, that not all abandoned dreams are really forgotten; instead they dredge themselves up in certain situations (usually in moments of dissatisfaction with oneself or with others). Last but not least, that apologies are in order when you know that you have hurt someone else.
