The Witch in the Forest.....

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult

The Witch in the Forest, , , had a
"terrible rep'...
for years and years, people
had thought that she ate
children..and "Their children"!
to be more exact!!!

But, heavens no!
This witch, had cable!
This witch loved to cook!
She watched all of the
food channel shows!

When two little children,
(Hansel and Grethel,
came to her door, one
fine November morning,
she bustled to the front
"Oh, My! Two Weetle Chewdren"
(that is how she said it!)
The two children knocked,
politely...and the witch hurried
to open the door for them!

"Come in, Come in,
you are most welcome!"
Then Hansel said,
"We are terribly lost, and
my sister is starving, well,
so am I!"
The witch had "instant
dinner guests!" (and no,
she wasn't going to
eat them!")

"Would you two like to sit
down? I have just made
a very fine meal, fit for a
a nobleman!" she said
beaming widely.
The children smiled and
Soon, they had gone thru
the Asian Chicken Salad,
the crablegs, and the tofu
soup, and the large Texas
toast, and the strawberry
rhubarb cobbler!
"Would you two like
anything else? " she
politely asked them.
"No. we are FUUULLLL!"
they laughed together.

Those two children
had never known that the
Witch in the Woods could
cook so fine, and or make
such a delicious and
satisfying meal, as she had
cooked that very night!
"YOU are the Bomb!"
said the boy.
"YOu sure can cook, and
bake!" said the little
"Do you think so?!" asked the
forest witch, quite pleased.

"Oh, definitely so!" the two
children said with gusto,
in unison.
"Why, you should open up
a restaurant...I 'd bet that
many, many
people would come to
eat here!"
Well, do you know, that
that is exactly what that
witch decided to do, , , and
do you know what else?

SHe named it after herself,
"The FoReSt WiTcH "
, and then she had a bakery,
in which she dubbed
"Hansel and Grethel's".
Just as the children had
predicted, people from
nearly everywhere came
to dine at "The Forest Witch"!

At Halloween, the Witch
in the Forest, made up
some dandies...there were,
broomstick "pops", frozen
and candied, candied
eyeballs that moved and
or jiggled, witches on
broomstick sugar snaps,
and cats made out of
chewy ginger cookies!
She also made more
assorted yummies
for more
Hallows Eve trick or treaters!

Yes, The Forest Witch became,
quite well known
, and very well
welcomed as well
as a beloved
"role model"
for all, everywhere.
Nobody warned their children,
about the nasty old witch in the
woods, as she was a caring,
and quite loving senior

...and oh, did I forget to mention?
Yes, I think that I did...
after their "huge dinner"
the first night at the Forest
witches' home, she walked
with them to where
they thought that they lived,
and then their parents and they
talked all night long,
about her plans..and they
all decided to live near by..
as the Forest Witch was so
taken with the whole family,
and wanted them to live next door!

You see, she wasn't REALLY a
bad person at all....there was just
a lot of BAD PRESS!
It just goes to show you, that
you just can't trust the
Media all of the time!!!!

P.S. They lived and ate happily ever after!
