Squash It!

Ready for another story. I love this one. It’s a Spanish tale about a king who is bitten by a louse. The louse is well cared-for since it has royal blood. It grows and grows until it’s as big as a horse. The king rides it every day. When the louse dies, the king has it made into a guitar. Anyone who can guess what the guitar is made of will win the hand of a princess of Spain. With all the princes in Europe coming to try their luck, will that smelly old farmer from the mountains have a chance? Besides, what would he do with a princess when he already has a wife and seven daughter.

It’s an uproarious story that’s great fun to tell. I hope you enjoy it.
