A knock there was upon the door.

There stood a munchkin, accompanied by a penguin.

"We have picked you to tell the story," the munchkin declared.

"Why me?" I sputtered.

"For the same reason we picked Lewis Carroll," answered the munchkin.

"And L. Frank Baum," added the penguin.

"But-- but they were writers of fairy tales."

"Not so, not so. They were chroniclers of our worlds."

.... "Okay, I'll get my pen."
