“Wha’s you?†says the Gairy-worm.

 

This wisna an encouragin openin for a conversation. Ailice replied, gey blate, “I—I haurly ken, Sir, juist at praisent—at laest I ken wha I wis whan I got up this mornin, but I think I maun hae been chainged several times fae syne.â€

 

“What div ye mean bi that?†says the Gairy-worm dour-like, “Explain yersel!â€

 

“I canna explain mysel, I doot, Sir,†says Ailice, “because I’m no mysel, ye see.â€

 

“I dinna see,†this wis the Gairy-worm.

 

“For a peety I canna pit it ony clearer,†Ailice replied, vera polite, “for I canna unnerstaun it mysel tae start wi; an bein that many different sizes in a day is gey ficklin.â€
