FOB instance how about tne

into your eyes with nearly perfect

squirming. And mudholes where

vines waiting to swallow at least
one foot in mire. And the nig,
juicy grape that turns out to be
sour. And the cluster you scratch
your hands getting to, only to
lose them as you bring the hand
out. And snakes!
OH NO! They can wait and
