Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Alice in WonderlandMarch 1, 2009
Alice was sitting on the bank with her sister, when she saw a white rabbit. He was talking, and he had a watch?! So, she ran after him through his hole.
It was a deep hole, and she fell, and fell, until she hit the bottom. She looked around and saw a little door, but she was too big to go through them.
She looked again, and she saw a table with a golden key and a tiny bottle. It had a label that said DRINK ME, so she did. It had, in fact, a sort of mixed flavor of cherry-tart, custard, pine-apple, roast turkey, toffee, and hot buttered toast. And it shrinked her enough to go through the door. She wandered through all kinds of landscapes, when she finally realized she wanted to grow to her real size and go home.
Finally, she met a blue caterpillar with hookah. He was sitting on a giant mushroom and offered her advice.
“One side will make you grow taller, and the other side will make you grow shorter”, he said. And she continued her journey.
There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep, and the other two were using it as a cushion, resting their elbows on it, and talking over its head. Alice stayed a while, but finally left: “It’s the stupidest tea-party I ever was at in all my life!”
Later she met the Queen of Hearts, played some croquet with her and at the end, got her real mad.
She ended up on a trial and got sentenced: “Off with her head!” the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Her soldiers rushed to her but Alice had grown to her full size by this time.
“Who cares for you?” said Alice, “You’re nothing but a pack of cards!”
At this the whole pack rose up into the air, and came flying down upon her: she gave a little scream, half of fright and half of anger, and tried to beat them off, and found herself lying on the bank, with her head in the lap of her sister, who was gently brushing away some dead leaves that had fluttered down from the trees upon her face.
“Wake up, Alice dear!” said her sister; “Why, what a long sleep you’ve had!”
