    Hello, How Do You Do?

    "Hello, How do you do?"
    "Well, and you?" answered the caterpillar to the ladybug.
    "Where are we, if I may ask?" asked the polite ladybug.
    "Yes, my dear you may, but I do not know the answer." "I have been here too long already, and I am afraid I've eaten too much of this shroom."
    "Oh dear....oh dear!" exclaimed the ladybug...."You've surely taken leave of your senses now, tsk tsk tsk." The ladybug shook her tiny head back and forth as she looked about.
    "Yes...but it is quite nice here, I think I shall stay a while." The caterpillar said as he began to yawn and stretch.
    The lady bug noticed the large fern behind the mushroom.
    "Right!" she again exclaimed, "Go behind the largest fern and make a right down the path." "I will be home soon."
    She turned to give a kind thank you and farewell, but the poor thing was in a deep slumber.
    "Poor creature." she thought to herself..."Doesn't he know...never to partake of the orange shrooms." "He's forever to dwell in the land of nod."
    She opened her short shiny but strong wings and flew below to the clearly lit path and was on her merry way before the day came to an end.

    A cautionary tale to ladybugs.

    Isn't she like supposed to eat pests, regardless of what runs through their little wormy veins or whatever they have? She just says "no" to 'shroomy worms.

    This the cautionary tale of a ladybug without high standards, and that simply is that. <piffle>

    Fun and I agree with GX. Nice er. . . 'shroom.
