Today In Cheerful News…

October 16, 2009

The Queen is fantastic!

Not only because she sent a five-year-old boy his balloon back with a personal letter (which is fantastic all on its own, and is how I’ve made this part of the Cheerful News series), but also because she’s been Queen for my entire life and I can’t remember her once having a public temper-tantrum or display of Teh Stupidz, like so many of her relatives. That takes dedication, people.

Love the monarchy or loathe it, you can’t help but like this particular monarch, who just always seems to do everything right.

    My two favourite Queen stories-
    1) When she was 18 she insisted on taking part in the war effort despite the resistance of her father (the King.)She and her sister drove trucks.

    2) A couple of years ago there was speculation in the press about her health because she had a plaster on her hand the place where an IV drip would go. It turned out she’d been bitten separating a fight between two of her corgis.
