I, TT, aka The #Joyful Journeyist, under the influence of the scent of Flowering Jasmine bushes, became PRINCESS JASMINE and crashed the King William Parade by joining it. Without a formal invitation. WITH intention of bringing YOU ALL a great story!
I normally refer to myself as Goldilocks, but for this story I decided Princess Jasmine would work better. (You can type "Goldilocks" in the search box at the top later and read my articles with that theme). I love Aladdin and my Son had a huge crush on her when he was about 4 so, I figured Why not? I actually became Princess Jasmine when I walked down the street to the King William Fair and passed LOTS of flowering jasmine on fences and gates. I used to have some in my backyard next to our hammock and the smell is quite intoxicating. Next to my gardenia bushes, the best thing to blow in the wind EVER! I stopped and smelled the flowering shrubs several times and so I became almost hypnotized by their aroma. I was transported by a jasmine induced magic carpet ride to a Disney Fantasy Land. By the time I got to the crowd, I was ready for anything! I bought my ticket, put on my Media Badge (leftover from the SA Book Festival) and began to follow the festivities! I felt like I NEEDED to be part of the Parade in order to bring you the best experience possible. YOU GUYS give me the confidence to get the story I know you want to read! I started out by just following alongside and taking pictures and video. But when the Taylor Swift groupies came along (Dudes dressed in short skirts with blow up guitars and wigs on), I HAD TO GRAB A GUITAR and just ROCK ON with them! Fortunately for me (unfortunately for YOU), I don't have a photo of me rocking out. I was busy playing my pretend guitar and dancing with a dude in a short skirt. You will at least be able to see who (or better yet WHAT) I am referring to as you watch my little movie.
I have given you a sneak peek at this Pooch and People Pleasing Parade. You now have a full year to plan, get EXCITED, and be here when Princess Jasmine reunites with King William in 2015. I guarantee you, it will be THE BOMB. Diggity. With not a cherry, but a DOG on top. Wait! Not just a dog. THREE DOGS.
I bought a ticket for $10 like everyone else. I also paid $10 to park, like the normal people that didn't get there early enough to snag free street parking. As ALWAYS, my opinions are my own.
