How not to read a bedtime story

Bedtime story tip: Enunciation when reading aloud to one's offpsring is all-important and can help you avoid the gaffe I committed this evening: referring to "Sleeping Beauty" as "Sleeping Booty." I was immediately busted by Mrs. LMC, and have little doubt it will be fodder for family gatherings for years to come.

This has been an LMC Public Service Announcement. We will now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

Ah you do know the un-disnyiefied version of the story don't you.

Believe me, the orginal was a lot closer to sleeping booty. It wasn't a kiss that dislodged that apple from her tender throat.

Damn, I wanted to be the one to say that....

Let's just say that they original story was in part about waking her up to her nature as a mature woman.

Not "G-rated." But then most of the original stories were not aimed at kids.
