Once Upon A Time...

...was a dear girl which everyone called Rotkäppchen because of her beloved red hood that she was wearing day by day. She lived in Germany,  a rich land. But all the money made the people cold and they had no feelings for the old and poor.Therefore Rotkäppchen's mother sent her regularly to her grandmother to bring her some food and wine because her pension was much to small. But cold hearted people are strange, as much as Germans had no feelings for poor people as much they loved animals. They spend 5 Billion Euros every year not only for house pets but also for reintroduction programs for example for wolves. Rotkäppchen feared the wolves in the wood a bit when she ran to the small old house of her poor and sick grandmother and she ran fast.

But at the end of the dark part of the wood she always needed a short rest and had made a little cozy nest. One day while she was sitting there a wold came nearer and talked to her, asked her where she was going and as a friendly person she answered. When she moved on she was not aware the the wolf stared after her and ran to her grandmothers house.

Looking for her Grandmother she was meaning to find her  in the bed and was frightened to see her that many changed. She must be sicker than expected.
'Oh! grandmother,' she said, 'what big ears you have!'
'All the better to hear you with, my child,' was the reply.
'But, grandmother, what big eyes you have!' she said.
'All the better to see you with, my dear.'
'But, grandmother, what large hands you have!'
'All the better to hug you with.'
'Oh! but, grandmother, what a terrible big mouth you have!'
'All the better to eat you with!'

The wolf took her to the kitchen, where grandmother had the dinner ready. They laughed about the misunderstanding and the longer Rotkäppchen watched the wolf, the more handsome he seemed to become.

When the wolf had appeased his appetite, they lay down in front of the fireplace and had some pomegranate and wine as dessert. Rotkäppchen fell in love with him and no one ever did anything to harm her again.

She hung the wolves mask over the fireplace never to forget the lesson that grandmother gave her: A man who had a good meal won't harm anyone and never will go away.

Now you know why virtual relationships never last long ;)

Hello Rotkäppchen. What a lovely story. And I must say, your wolf is H-O-T! You guys make such a cute couple. That photo of you together at the dinner table is ADORABLE!

Maybe being a rich and cold-hearted German is a better deal than being a rich and misogynistic Italian! :P

Rotkäppchen, have you heard about the #1850charla project? It's going on now with a big "Live Tweet" day on 28 Feb. It would be so great if you would join us. Here's the info, and LMK if you have any questions about it:

Thank you again for the lovely story Rotkäppchen. That red velvet hood you're wearing and the little cropped sweater are SO cute! I love your clothes!

Hope you see you soon Rotkäppchen.

Warmest Personal Regards,

Thank you! Sometimes I think I am a complete noob in social media. I followed your links but did not get at all what is it about and what to do. Maybe you have something else?

Isabella Medici said...

Oh no Rotkäppchen! Sometimes the court vernacular of a "princess" can be a little obscure. I'm sure out in the woods you have many other realities to deal with and other ways of speaking about them. I apologize for my obtuseness!

You looked at this one then, but it didn't help?:

Perhaps this one will be better?:

I am certain I can explain it better and more clearly if that one also does not help. Perhaps I am only hesitating as to avoid being too directive or, you know, spoiling the fun.

You might also look at my own website which might shed more light. (Though I fear it may only add to the confusion!)

And lastly, I have recently opened a Gym in Second Life:

Thank you again for this lovely letter Rotkäppchen! Although we have not met, I already feel as though I know you. I hope very much that your life will not be confined to one single letter, but that you may be allowed to live and breathe beyond this one adventure. I suppose that, most of all, is the idea behind #1850charla, to breathe life into people like yourself who are so wonderful and amazing and need to exist in this world.

Take care Rotkäppchen!

Yours always,
