My name is Alice. How do you do?
Humph! Whatever are you doing in my rabbit hole? I suppose you're
going to say you fell from the sky.
Well no, as a matter of fact I remember chasing a rabbit... he was
running so fast and saying...
Oh, my ears and whiskers!
Yes, exactly like that. And he ran into his rabbit hole and I
