Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the<o:p></o:p>

 monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have<o:p></o:p>

 killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals.<o:p></o:p>

 So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could<o:p></o:p>

 answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year<o:p></o:p>

 to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had<o:p></o:p>

 no answer, he would be put to death.<o:p></o:p>


 The question?....What do women really want? Such a question<o:p></o:p>

 would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young<o:p></o:p>

 Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was<o:p></o:p>

 better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition<o:p></o:p>

 to have an answer by year's end.<o:p></o:p>


 He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the<o:p></o:p>

 princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court<o:p></o:p>

 jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a<o:p></o:p>

 satisfactory answer.<o:p></o:p>


Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only<o:p></o:p>

she would have the answer.<o:p></o:p>


 But the price would be high; as the witch was famous<o:p></o:p>

 throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she<o:p></o:p>



 The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice<o:p></o:p>

 but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question,<o:p></o:p>

 but he would have to agree to her price first<o:p></o:p>


 The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble<o:p></o:p>

 of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest<o:p></o:p>



 Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and<o:p></o:p>

 hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made<o:p></o:p>

 obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a<o:p></o:p>

 repugnant creature in all his life.<o:p></o:p>


 He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such<o:p></o:p>

 a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal,<o:p></o:p>

 spoke with Arthur.<o:p></o:p>


 He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to<o:p></o:p>

 Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table.<o:p></o:p>


 Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered<o:p></o:p>

 Arthur's question thus:<o:p></o:p>


 What a woman really wants, she to be in<o:p></o:p>

 charge of her own life.<o:p></o:p>


 Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had<o:p></o:p>

 uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be<o:p></o:p>



 And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his<o:p></o:p>

 freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.<o:p></o:p>


 The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling<o:p></o:p>

 himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But,<o:p></o:p>

 what a sight awaited him... The most beautiful woman he had<o:p></o:p>

 ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot<o:p></o:p>

 asked what had happened.<o:p></o:p>


 The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her<o:p></o:p>

 when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her<o:p></o:p>

 horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful<o:p></o:p>

 maiden the other half.<o:p></o:p>


 Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or<o:p></o:p>



 Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a<o:p></o:p>

 beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in<o:p></o:p>

 the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer<o:p></o:p>

 having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a<o:p></o:p>

 beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?<o:p></o:p>


 What would YOU do?<o:p></o:p>


 What Lancelot chose is below. BUT.....make YOUR choice<o:p></o:p>

 before you scroll down below. OKAY?<o:p></o:p>



 Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the<o:p></o:p>

 choice herself.<o:p></o:p>


 Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be<o:p></o:p>

 beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough<o:p></o:p>

 to let her be in charge of her own life.<o:p></o:p>


Now....what is the moral to this story?<o:p></o:p>




 The moral is.....<o:p></o:p>

 If you don't let a woman have her own way....<o:p></o:p>

 Things  are going to get ugly.<o:p></o:p>
