s32517 Window Beads - 13 x 20 mm Flat Diamond - Ravens Wing (Strand 10)Once
upon a time – there were two brothers. One was greedy and s32516 Window Beads - 8 x 12 mm Flat Rectangle - Cassis and Cream (15)conniving,
and so became very successful and wealthy. His heart was as black as a Raven’s
Wing.
He would sit s32511 Window Beads - 11 x 10 mm Flat Square - Bumbleberry Humbug (Strand 15)around
eating Cassis
and Cream
, and Bumbleberry
Humbugs
.
 
s32454 Glass Drops - 6 x 9 mm Pear Drops - Juiced Mango (strand 30)The
other was a good man – wise and kind – and he didn’t give a Juiced
Mango
for worldly
riches.
s32458 Glass Flowers - 13 mm Lotus Blossom - Gold Accented Nile Green Opal (1)One
day – Ali Baba – for that was his name, was venturing out into the forest
to pick some Lotus
Blossoms
to sell at the market place. The fact that Lotus Blossoms
do not grow in the forest may well have had s32459 Glass Leaves - 8 x 11 mm Triangle Cone Leaf - Chartreuse (Strand 20)something
to do with his lack of success – he would have been better off trying to
gather some Triangle
Cone Leaves
in the Summer s32450 Glass Drops - 6 x 9 mm Pear Drops - Summer Meadows (strand 30)Meadows!
s32463 Glass Flowers - 13 mm Lotus Blossom - Plum Perwinkle (1)While
he was picking some Plum

s32514 Window Beads - 8 x 12 mm Flat Rectangle - Titanic (15)s32512 Window Beads - 8 x 12 mm Flat Rectangle - Moody Blues (15)“This
is Titanic!” he
said to himself. “Without coffee – everyone will be sad and have
the Moody
Blues
. s32515 Window Beads - 8 x 12 mm Flat Rectangle - Rising Tide (15)This
is part of a Rising
Tide
of crime! I must do something,” he thought. 
So he went s32453 Glass Drops - 6 x 9 mm Pear Drops - Dwarf Steel (strand 30)
home
and got his Dwarf
Steel
sword, put s32457 Glass Drops - 4 x 6 mm Tiny Tims Drops - Dark Olive Khaki (strand 50)on
his Dark
Olive Khakis
, and then kissed
his two wives good-bye. 
s32452 Glass Drops - 6 x 9 mm Pear Drops - Rose Lustre (strand 30)s32451 Glass Drops - 6 x 9 mm Pear Drops - Olive Lustre (strand 30)They
had been sisters, Rose
Lustre
and Olive
Lustre
, and he had been unable to
choose between them, and so he married them both – which was
big of him, don’t you think?

grabbed some Lenticular
Donuts
as s32461 Glass Flowers - 13 mm Lotus Blossom - Matte Caribbean Sea Opal (1)a
snack, and went down to the Matte
Caribbean Sea
, to talk to the tb8t86 Japanese Seedbeads - 8/0 Toho Triangles - Metallic Dark Abalone IrisMetallic
Dark Abalone
– the wisest of all creatures in the sea. 
The Abalone
lived in a cave, and when Ali Baba got to the cave, he hammered on the
rocks and called. “Open up you old clam!” The Abalone called – “Open?
Sez who?” Ali Baba called back – “Open! Sez me!” 
The Abalone finally let Ali Baba into the cave, and offered
him a drink. And then another. And tb8t993 Japanese Seedbeads - 8/0 Toho Triangles - Inside Colour Bronze/Black Diamondtb8t995 Japanese Seedbeads - 8/0 Toho Triangles - Inside Colour Gold/Aqua ABanother.
Pretty soon, Ali Baba could see colours inside of colours! He could see Inside
Colour Bronze / Black Diamond!
And Inside
Colour Gold / Aqua AB
. Pretty soon, Ali Baba forgot why he had come,
and he and the Abalone stayed up all night, singing sea shanties.
s32513 Window Beads - 8 x 12 mm Flat Rectangle - Ali Baba and the Coffee Thieves (15)s32518 Window Beads -  Flat Wave - Turquoise (Strand 10)Meanwhile,
the Coffee
Thieves
had descended on the city like
a Flat Wave.
But they were so jittery from drinking too much coffee that they woke up
a guard, who alerted the police with his Trumpet
Lily
. The thieves were caught and arrested. Ali Baba’s brother managed
to take the credit, and Ali Baba woke up with a terrible headache – that
not even coffee could cure. 
And that is the real story of Ali Baba and the Coffee Thieves
and any other version that you may have heard was written by the Evil Brothers’
Anti-Defamation League.
