I followed sister into the meadows again today. i would have stayed at home, really, and continue to read that new issue of "WONDERLAND". It's the best mag EVER! So instead of lying on my bed, looking at the cute and hot pictures in the magazine, i'm stuck here, listening to a boring chapter of 'tales of two cities'. it's so old!
"how can you read books that have no pictures in it?" I asked, hanging from the oak tree. before she could answer and lecture me about the importance of reading, i asked again, "and do you really enjoy this stuff? it's prints are so small. and it has 200 pages full of that old language." she smiled, as usual, and begin to lecture as i continue to half-write this and half-connecting the daisies to make a chain for diana.
While i was fitting the daisy chain on Dinah, i spotted a rabbit. so cute, so fluffy. i would have done anything to get out of this hell of a story so i hopped down and followed the cute rabbit willingly. imagine my shock when it talked! I mean, literally! And up-close, it's wearing a red tail-coat with a monocle over one eye. He's holding some kind of old pocket watch and kept talking with a pretty squeaky voice, "I'M LATE! LATE! THE QUEEN IS GOING TO HAVE MY HEAD FOR THIS! LATE!" my sister doesn't seem to be able to listen at all. Duh, it's because we're 10 yards away from under the tree she was reading.
I followed the little white as it disappeared into a rabbit hole. it's pretty big and i crawled through it. it gets tighter and tighter as it goes, and i really want to go back but I'm stuck! my shoulders are jammed through the ** small hole! then the ground crumbled and i went down, feet going up, head going down, up again and feet going down again and round and round. i think i turned a full 4 360 degree spin! i have to show my teacher this! but in the middle of the sixth, i think, my head bonked the surprisingly hard ground but no bone was broken. the shadow of the rabbit started to disappear around the bend and i quickly got up to my feet and followed it. I wonder how i'm going to get out...
So much has happened today! i mean, A LOT! The rabbit really disappeared this time, i don't know which door it has gone through. And the room has either shrunken, or I'm the one who's getting bigger! the doors are all of the same size, so i can't guess. then a curtain moved. THE RABBIT!
no. it's just an old door, sneezing like crazy. "have you seen a rabbit here? about this..." i shook my hand vertically to show the height, "tall and this..." i mimicked, "wide." the door sneezed in reply. So rude! "hello! I'm a human and i exist!"
"pardon me, but you are simply just rude, madam!" the door said between sniffles and wheezes. "so sorry!" i apologized, trying to hide my laughter. "have you, by any chance, sir, seen a little white rabbit running through here?" i smiled awkwardly. the door sneezed yet again, "just went through me! but you don't want to follow that guy, the queen is really upset these days."
"my, whatever the reason?"
"about who stole her tarts and all that. really, she's too immature to be queen!"
"i quite agree..."
"if you really want to follow the guy, you're too big to fit through me! moreover, I'm locked!"
and so, i looked around. walls, doors, curtains. i turned back to the door. then turned back. there's a glass table! I'm sure it wasn't there before! but who cares? a key sat on top, and beside a glass about three-fourths full of an orange colored liquid. and on the glass, a label that said, 'DRINK ME! I'M DELICIOUS!' Hilarious! i took the key and drank the orange liquid. sour, sweet, salty and slightly bitter. not my type of drink.
then the disaster occurred! i became big! Now how am i going to follow the stupid rabbit or get out of this place? i knelt down and cried, which is very childish of me. i cried like there's no tomorrow and soon, my big wet soppy tears turned into a big wet puddle, big enough for worms or rats (for that is who i met in my pool of tears) to swim in it. a wet, grumpy rat came swimming past, cursing me with the worst of words.
"now look what you have done! I'm soaked! DIRTY WITH TEARS! your tears, you_!" he swore and vowed. and i was like, I'm right here, i can hear you, you know! then a crazy wild idea popped up in my brain. and since i'm thirsty, i drank my tears! WOW, i shrink into just the size of the rat and spotted a whole horde of soaking wet animals that is long-gone extinct already. the door gulped in the water, swallowing us with it.
