Once upon a time in a faraway kingdom there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess.
Now, this particular prince was quite finicky. He wasn't willing to marry just any princess. He wanted to find a princess who was beautiful, kind, witty, charming, and, most important of all, sensitive.
“Sensitive,” wailed the king. “How will you possibly know if your princess is sensitive until many years have passed? You don't have time for this, Son.”
