Gary and Charles

Once upon a time, in a land called Endobaria lived a great prince named Charles the Second. Charles the Second's father was named Gary the Second, and he greatly envied his son because his name sounded way cooler and king-like. So Gary the Second came up with a sinister plot to get rid of Charles the Second forever. You see, Charles the Second really liked jello, so Gary the Second came to him one day, and told him all about jello land, a magical kingdom far far away, where everything was made of jello. But Charles the second of course, being as smart as he was, told his father everything he knew about pine cones, which wasn't very much actually, but since there were no pine cones in Endobaria, it seemed fascinating to Gary the Second, so he sat there and listened to him for the whole thirty seconds that Charles the Second was talking. Then Gary the Second went peacefully to bed. That night, Gary the Second came up with another sinister plan to rid Endobaria of Charles the Second forever. In the morning, Gary the second snuck out of his bed, and tip toed over to Charles the Second's room. There, right next to Charles the Second's bed, he took out his kazoo, and blew into it as hard as he could and shouted "Surprise!" and told him that it was his birthday, and that he was giving him a free trip to Disney World. But Charles the Second, being as smart as he was, knew that Disney World was on earth, which was a totally different planet, which was in a totally different solar system, which was in a totally different galaxy, which was in a totally different Universe. So Charles the Second said ok, and went over to his favorite closet to play checkers with his cat, Mary the Second, who couldn't actually play checkers, but moved around the pieces one at a time, so it was close enough. Gary the Second thought that Charles the Second had actually left, so he went to celebrate. He didn't actually do much celebrating, he just threw away his name plate on his throne that said 'Gary the Second' and put the one that said 'Charles the Second' on. Then of course, Charles the Second came out of the closet, and Gary the Second's plan was totally ruined. The End

    Clearly, Gary the Second, was a very weak and insecure man. How tragic that he didn't have unconditional love for his son, Charles the Second. I was hoping to hear more about jello land, but maybe in another story you can elaborate on the wonders of jello, because everybody loves jello.
    And I love you soooooooooooooooo much.
