I saw you today. I begged and wheedled to come down to see you and when we got there you snubbed me. You ignored me, disregarded me, slighted me, spurned me, shunned me, gave me the cold shoulder, avoided me, evaded me, sidestepped me, dodged me, ran away from me, eluded me. Worst of all was the fact that I deserved it.
Once upon a time there was a little girl, let's call her Nina. She was a happy little girl. She went to a nice little school, she has two friends, let's name them Ellie and Emily. Emily was a tomboy. Nina liked Emily, so she became a tomboy too. All of a sudden she wasn't so nice anymore, and she became Nola.
