A fable by Aesop
Once upon a time, a weasel fell in love with a young and charming boy. But the boy let the weasel down. Brokenhearted, the weasel went to Aphrodite and begged the goddess to transform her into a woman.
Aphrodite, the goddess of passion and compassion, felt sorry for the weasel and quickly transformed her into a beautiful maiden. When the young boy saw the transformed weasel, he fell in love with her and took her to his home.
While the couple stood there in the nuptial chamber, Aphrodite was curious to see if the weasel had changed her character as well. So she sneaked in and released a mouse in the middle of the room. All of a sudden, the weasel left the boy and began to chase the mouse. Seeing this, the goddess became very disappointed-so she decided to make the weasel just like she was before!
