Little Jenny Factorypudding never left her room. When asked why by a visiting busybody, Little Jenny turned away to face the wall and froze in place until long after the busybody had given up, gone home, and consumed three flagons of apricot brandy and two corn muffins. It was only then that Little Jenny Factorypudding with a toss of her head cried out, “Why should I? I have all the safety pins I’ll ever need gathered in that corner.” She followed this statement by flouncing about tearing recipe cards to shreds in order to demonstrate her passionate determination to remain roombound. Needless to say, no volunteers stepped forward to try and lure her out. Hundreds of years later, she died happily as a satisfied crone and was assigned a carbon copy of her room for eternity.
