I posted this story on another blog after someone forwarded it to me but thought I'd set it out by itself here. Any thoughts?: King Arthur was captured by a ruler of another kingdom and his ransom for release was set as the answer to this question: "What do women want?" The knights of the round table scoured the earth looking for the answer. After weeks they found a hideously ugly witch who knew it. In exchange for the answer, however, she demanded Sir Lancelot become her lover. King Arthur told his friend the price was too high and that the knights should look for someone else with the answer but Lancelot agreed to the witch's demand. The witch explained that what women want is the ability to choose what they get. The rival king was satisfied this was the correct answer and released King Arthur. The witch demanded that Sir Lancelot be brought to her that evening. Lancelot, upon arriving at the castle of the witch on his first night as her lover was shocked to find a beautiful woman in her place. The witch explained, "my hideous form is reserved for during the day, but at night I become a beguiling mistress." "Now Lancelot," the witch went on, "you can decide whether I am beautiful during the day when all your friends will see me but hideous at night when we are alone, or I can be ugly during the day and beautiful for you at night. Which do you choose?" Lancelot, without hesitation, responded, "I choose whichever you prefer" and with that, the witch decided she would be beautiful in both the day and the night based on his answer.

dealing with witches from any land requires diplomacy. We are practical and beguiling while being aloof and challenging. Lancelot and KingArthur considered themselves to be brothers. His sacfrice would have been a point of honor. They were Pagans as well and this would not have been his first encounter with a witch.

So Lancelot, in essence, gets rewarded by allowing his lover to be whomever she wants to be. Take notes, gentlemen! PS. Blue, that wink was a joke. I have a twisted sense of humour at times. ;)

hello blue I think it shows two things. One is that Lancelot was a very smart and inciteful man and the second is that he had the sense to give the witch the option and opportunity to be beautiful all the time without conforming to the steryotype which was expected of her. He gave her freedom of choice. Smart cookie . It just goes to show in relationships, that if you take away the ties that bind us all wonderful things can happen.

Also, Sir Lancelot means well by telling the witch what every she wishes she can be. This shows support, but also the avoidance of confrontation. Also it is meant well, sweet, and considered. Deep down she just wanted to hear the words from him, to confirm what she always secretly wished...but was afraid to show.

What I got out of it was: Don't take a witch as your lover. She can turn hideous any time she wishes. lolololol

One can probably add lots more morals to the story here. Since the witch chose to be beautiful looking day and night for Lancelot, she was nice, thus beautiful on the inside. At the same time her choice could have been hideous, since perhaps the other knights might have considered Lancelot a superman-like hero for having a hideously ugly lover. At other times this could sound more like an employer-employee relationship.

Dear Sarah, Wow, that's interesting, I didn't get that from the story at all. Actually, I think the moral is that women want to be empowered to make their own choices and are drawn to a man who enables them to do so. I don't think Lancelot manipulated his answer at all, it was instinctual which is why she chose to be beautiful all the time. I have long said that I would love to be with a woman who doesn't need to be with me but who chooses to be with me. I was surprised by your analysis but can't say it's wrong. Dear Queen, Yes, the secret to longevity of relationships is definitely compromise. Dear Rob, I did leave that summary out but too true sometimes.

Hi Blue! He already knew that the correct answer, in order to free King Arthur, was "give women the ability to make their own choices". Things could have gotten pretty ugly (so to speak!) if Lancelot would have told the witch what to be instead of let the witch be what ever she wanted to be.

BlueEyz you are looking very fly with you private jet- hehe. I had to read this twice. So basically the witch is trying to have control of the situation when all along the guy is manipulating her answer. :-o Shocking!! lol Did I analyse that right? sarah :-)

This was a good blog, Blue. I like this way of thinking and enjoyed where the story went. LOL. I know one very happily married couple. One day I asked him how he did it. He told me that what ever she said, he always said, "yes, dear." Of course, I also believe that men are the same way. Just let them be who they are and they are much better.


People may not remember what you say or do, but they will remember how you made them feel.

Wait a sec, I think I am confused??? So the moral of the story for us men is that "If you don't let a woman have her own way.... Things are going to get ugly!" :o)
