To wonder, if she hadn't run away...

Surely the prince would have married Cinderella quicker and she'd have been saved the indignity of him admitting he couldn't remember what she looked like

BrownEyedLady Sat 18-Feb-17 20:36:23

You know, I've never noticed before that he clearly didn't remember what she looked like!

I couldn't remember what my now husband looked like after our first 'encounter' in a club. To save face I got to pub for first date early and became 'engrossed' in something so he had to approach me!!! It worked out for us!

I'm left bewildered tonight by the stupid bint that couldn't remember the simple words "stop little pot, stop!" Fucking porridge everywhere thanks to that dozy cow grin

In the recent Cinderella film, the fairy godmother puts some sort of spell on her so that her step mother and step sisters don't recognise her so maybe that's why the Prince doesn't either.

Yes, it's very strange.

I think he spent the night staring at her boobs.

BrownEyedLady Sat 18-Feb-17 20:39:14

Maybe he'd had too many champagnes? I too have turned up for a second date (after a ONS) not 100% sure I'd recognise him...

She must have contoured on the night. Fake news.

Met DH as a ONS. I had had many ciders and it was before I started wearing glasses. I thought he was the image of a famous man I thought was lush. Bumped into him the next night in a different pub. He approached me. He did not look like famous man.
I also blame the booze for the Princes confusion grin

Blimey - It's never occurred to me before that he couldn't remember what she looked like. Also, he clearly had a weird foot fetish. There was no need for him to trudge around the whole kingdom getting ladies to try the slipper on, as C obviously lived locally.

MommaGee Sat 18-Feb-17 20:56:28

Ahh I've spent years angry at him and it never occurred to me he was just piddled!! If MY Cinderella it would be a masked ball a la Labyrinth.

But why didn't she stay?? I know she was embarrassed but woman, be proud!! I'd love to see the look on the sisters faces at the ball as they realise.

Saw the ballet today, can you tell?

NeverTwerkNaked Sat 18-Feb-17 21:05:30

Was it the Birmingham one? Beautiful ballet!

LucklessMonster Sat 18-Feb-17 21:09:14

But why didn't she stay??

Her feet must have been fucking killing her. I'd have run away too after dancing in glass shoes.

Oreocrumbs Sat 18-Feb-17 21:13:36

I always wonder just what size are Cinderella's feet? Because surely there must have been at least one other woman in the kingdom with the same shoe size..... I know loads of people with the same shoe size as me!

BrownEyedLady Sat 18-Feb-17 21:14:17

Christ yes! Those shoes must have been torture!

MommaGee Sat 18-Feb-17 21:20:04

Yes never matinee althp I want to be 5 and cry cos Cinders is meant to be BLONDE but she was great and the sisters so funny. I'd be the blonde one!!

Oreo I assume something tiny like a size 3 as everyone's feet were too big, none too small

Her nails must have been in a right state what with all the housework, presumably the FG did a quick mani/pedi before the ball,but surely the ugly sisters would have noticed the nail job the next morning, and commented.

TheElephantofSurprise Sat 18-Feb-17 21:20:49

Her feet must have been fucking killing her
That would be it. I've left places for that reason.

MommaGee Sat 18-Feb-17 21:24:02

Never thought about that. Magic shower, spray tan, pedi and manicure plus frock - ypud think she could have managed comfy shoes

Hassled Sat 18-Feb-17 21:30:24

She couldn't possibly have stayed - think of the poor little mice and whatnot (squirrels? dogs?) that were the horses/footmen - what would have happened to them miles from home? And it would have been a waste of a fine pumpkin that presumably was earmarked for pie.

NinjaLeprechaun Sat 18-Feb-17 21:31:54

He didn't recognize her because it was a masquerade ball, her face would have been hidden. Any version of the story which leaves that part out is wrong.

MommaGee Sat 18-Feb-17 21:36:06

In the movie or was it Into the Woods the pumpkin was wrecked and the creatures went into the hedgerow. So pumpkin would just be sat on the driveway bring eaten by the pets haha

creampinkrose Sat 18-Feb-17 21:37:35

I still reckon he spent the night staring at her boobs Ninja grin

PageStillNotFound404 Sat 18-Feb-17 21:40:54

That's why I'm still slaving away...because I'm a fucking size 6 and some other lying cow nicked my glass slippers. Can never find any of the glittery little fuckers in the sales either.

ZippyNeedsFeeding Sat 18-Feb-17 21:43:45

In the original fairy story (I think it was a traditional German one, but not sure) the slipper was fur, not glass. The glass slipper was a mis-translation.
