Snakes in the grass, yes, but snakes in the tree??? Another thing I've learned out at the farm. I found one in a birdhouse once. Yikes! Photo taken by my brother Boo.
"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
