excerpt from DD5's new story, The Egg and the Stone

"The egg and the stone lived together on a hillside. Life on the hillside was ideal, except for the fact they only had teeny tiny legs. The friends wanted to be able to walk around together, but their legs were so small that they would roll down the hill in opposite directions. This was both sad and counter-productive. So they decided to visit the doctor, who sent them to a surgeon."

Every Sunday it brooded and lay on the floor. Inconveniently close to the drawing-room door.
