And now my Lady Worm’s.

Every lady at the ball was jealous of Lady Worm. “How does she stay so long and lean?” asked Lady Mole.
“And so graceful?” asked Lady Chicken.
“Well,” said Lady Badger, “when you don’t have limbs, you never have to worry about where you put them.”
“And to do so much! She seems to be able to be in so many places at once!” exclaimed Lady Mule. “What does she do, clone herself?”
“Cut herself in half and send her one part to the flower show while the other picks up her daughter from tennis camp?” asked Lady Mantis.
This sent all the ladies to murmuring and then Lady Worm passed by in her evening dress and they all got quiet, then stepped all over themselves to greet her.
