Hair Today - Almost Gone Tomorrow...When Belle Nearly Lost It!

My blog has been a place of misreableness (yes, I checked, that is a word) lately. So I thought that before Helen downs another bottle of gin reading my posts I'd better lighten the air a little.

After all, my blog has been the home of some great hilarity over the past year and two months what with posts about korma specials in the pub, revenge on my husband, dodgy perms and poodle-tastic posts.  So, here I want to share with you something funny that happened on our January holiday to Orlando.

We had booked to take Mini Cheddar to dine for lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table inside the iconic castle itself. It wasn't a cheap affair by any means but it was totally worth it. Just to be in the castle - plus, we had a great seat right by the window overlooking FantasyLand. The food and service was amazing and MC got lots of attention from all the princesses.

Don't get too close Belle!
First, the lady herself - Cinderella. Then came Snow White. Then Princess Aurora (that's Sleeping Beauty to you and me). Then Ariel. Finally it was the the turn of Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

As with all the princess meets it was hug and photo time.

A poor unsuspecting Belle pulled MC in tight and posed for the photograph. Little did she know what was about to happen.

MC's headband with little wire butterflies had become entangled in Belles barnet. When she realised that there was quite a lot of her hair entwined it became apparent from the look of horror in her eyes that she was in danger of losing her wig!

Can you imagine? All those little princesses on holiday dining nicely in the castle suddenly seeing their idol Princess Belle lose her hair.

So, what could we do? I had to step in to help her obviously. Meanwhile, poor Belle is trying to remain calm as well as keep MC from galloping away with her hairpiece. Also, by this time, a number of fellow diners had realised what was taking place and began gawping and tittering at the hilarious scene unfolding in front of their eyes.

Finally, after what seemed like an age I untangled the pair and Belle was free to continue her princess duties around the castle. She scarpered away from us so fast she forgot to sign MC's autograph book.

Personally, I think she ran off to change her royal knickers!

Matt managed to capture it all and so here, for your viewing pleasure, is the video evidence:

You can just make out Belle in a panic at 49 secs saying to me "Oooh don't pull my hair too much"

Ha ha! That made me giggle. You can really see her starting to panic a little. 

HELEN said...

Honestly...pardon my language but I was shitting it a bit. I thought I'd have to go and get a pair of scissors! Matt just sat there and carried on with the video camera. Typical man! x

Awkward to say the least- that has brightened up my day!  Very funny Heather, and lets not forget poor Belle in all this! ;)

Mama Syder said...

Oh bless her, she did look worried, poor Bella! Love your face as you looked to hubby for help, lol...great video, the family behind are really amused x

Mummyandthebeastie said...

Ah MC was so patient too whilst you were untangling! Belle must have been bricking it, that wig could have been all over the place! lol x

MummyVsWork said...

lol loved it! She had that "must not panic but oh poop" look on her face whilst she chatted away :D

grumpinator said...

brilliant! I loved her face of panic with a smile plastered over it and how incredibly cute is MC! Just edible cuteness!

Priceless! I guess they really get in trouble if they're 'revealed'. Loved our character lunch, the look of sheer joy on DD's face when she met Winnie The Pooh was worth the air fare alone :D

Oh that is SO funny! My mouth dropped open when reading and I realised what was going to happen! We did the Winnie the Pooh meal when we were there 3 years ago. Expensive as you say but so worth it for the memories. And boy have you one cool memory!
