Once upon a time, in a land not-so-very-far away, there lived a very, very, very (very!) important princess. She had very serious work to do in her royal kingdom and could not be distracted by typical princessy things. She kept any glamorous demeanor she might possess hidden. If you peeked in the windows of her castle, you would see her wearing men's boxer shorts, sports bras (sometimes) and cotton t-shirts. She flitted around barefoot with no decoration adorning her toes except a slightly askew silver ring. Her wavy locks were twisted into an unassuming ponytail, and loose tendrils tucked behind her royal ears. Although her prince had given her many, many, many (many!) beautiful pieces of jewelry, she wore only her matrimonial rings on unpolished fingers, a yellow rubber wristband embellished with the word livestrong on her wrist, and a silver chain with lucky amulets around her royal neck. No makeup sullied her skin, and most of the time, her brown eyes sat heavy-lidded behind black-framed spectacles. Now, it should be noted that this very, very, very, (very!) important princess knew that one's beauty never has to be sacrificed. But, oh! It was so very, very, very (very!) much easier. It should also be noted that when the kingdom's very, very, very (very!) serious work being done reaches its conclusion, there will be a jubilant royal celebration. And, dear reader, we are told that the oh-so-important, oh-so-intelligent, oh-so-inconspicous-for-now princess cleans up very, very, very (very!) well.
