Re: North Tower
There is a broken spinning wheel in the Queen’s sitting room in the top spire of the tower. Provenance unknown. It materialized without warning in a dim cupboard during routine monthly cleaning. Some surprise! Spider webs, dust, and other detritus hid a malfunctioning spindle. Please fix this at your earliest convenience.
I have placed your request in the queue. Be advised that all available personnel are busy with preparations for the Princess’s sixteenth birthday ball. I shall wait to schedule repair until afterwards. Thanks for your patience.

Nice to hear from you.
Love this! So clever! Maybe a collection of Flash Fairy Tales in your future?
Thanks! I do have one published in a dead tree anthology from the Dribble Drabble Review. It’s not a fairy tale, though. Maybe a chapbook?
