about this story

I had spent the day at the Renaissance Festival eating turkey legs, being called "my lady" and watching gypsies and pirates interact. I had a great time, though I was ready to return to the real world. I walked to my car, got in and looked down at the steering wheel which had a note taped to it. It said "My lady, your presence is requested at Hannah's Hot Pies". I looked for a coupon on back, thinking this was an advertisement, but there was no coupon. I sat in my car debating what I should do. Thinking that a nice slice of pumpkin pie sounded good, I drove to the pie shop. I tried to open the door to the pie shop, but it was locked. At the same time, I noticed a note taped to the door. It read, "My lady, take your carriage to the proprietor of bounded papyrus." Now intrigued, I drove my car to the book store. as I am walked the shelves thinking why I had come and trying to figure out what to look for, I noticed a red book titled "The History of the Renaissance Era". I picked up the book opened the cover and found a third note: "My lady, visit the Queen who dwells in the back of this castle". I found the queen, though it was really just an author discussing her new book "Millions of Smooth Stones". As I sat down to listen, I found it hard to listen to her because I was thinking about the notes I had followed to get here and wondering what it all meant. All of a sudden everyone was clapping because the author was done speaking. As I followed everyone else in clapping, the author walked over, bent down close to me and whispered "My lady" and handed me...a coupon for her new book! I should have trusted my instincts from the beginning and knew this was a gimmick and advertisement!
