Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Guppy who drew on the walls, even though she knew she shouldn't.
Her parents got very tired of cleaning the walls and finally one day they put Guppy in a box and mailed it to Antarctica, where Guppy lived the rest of her days with the penguins.
Guppy frowned at me from bed. "Mom, stories are supposed to have happy endings."
"You want a happy ending? Then don't draw on the walls."
My stories make up in morals what they lack in subtlety.
