The Small World

by Rolli -

It's a taalll world out there. It really is.

Life can be tough in the tall world. You can't reach anything. Say you're in the backyard and there's a nice juicy peach on the peach tree, and you want it so bad, and you're starving, well, that's just too bad. Because you won't be able to reach it, not even on your tip-toes, not even if you jump. All you can do is sit there staring, licking your lips, hoping the peach…drops…off.

Life can be frustrating in the tall world. You can't see anything. Say you're riding in the car and your dad says, "Look at that elephant go!" and you want to see it so bad, and you're desperate, well, forget about it. Because you won't be able to see it, not even if you stretch your back out like taffy, not even if you break your neck. All you can do is sit there pouting while your dad says, "Wow, we'll never see one of those again, not in a hundred…million…years."
