NaPoWriMo Day 19 “How to be a Princess”

I wrote this back in 2008, but it seems appropriate to finally share for this prompt.

Princess Rules 101

  1. Speak when spoken to; unless of course your aren’t supposed to interact with this member of your kingdom. In that case be pleasantly inaudibly persistent in refusing conversation.
  2. Say what you mean and mean what you say. It helps to know all the languages of your kingdom, and neighboring kingdoms, and all the cultures and body language.
  3. Think before you speak, as goes with number 2.
  4. Present Perfect Poise, Posture and be positive.
  5. Cook and have a specialty meal your Prince will soon love.
  6. Knowledge is Power and you must be a scholar to be respected as the upcoming queen of your kingdom.
  7. Although the situation rarely occurs, be prepared to live simply outside your palace walls, aka know how to live simply in your own kingdom.
  8. Be cautious yet polite to strangers.
  9. Know magic, fighting, gardening and especially history.
  10. Remember everything happens for a reason, and trust your instincts.
