Did You Sleep Well?


Would you with twenty feather beds,

twenty mattresses and a princess on top of you?

I’m a pea,

not a pillow.



I could barely sleep with excitement…

Finally, I may have met my princess!

It all depends – ALL depends –

on how she slept…



I barely slept at all.

Who knows what’s in that bed…

Cabbage? Cauliflower? Caravan?

I would have slept better outside in the


I will NOT be coming here again.
