The most remarkable thing about Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is her house, which is upside down. It is a little brown house, and sitting there in its tangly garden it looks like a small brown puppy lying on its back with its feet in the air.
When I wash dishes, I pretend that I am a beautiful princess with long, golden, curly hair, and apple-blossom skin and forget-me-not blue eyes. I have been captured by a wicked witch and my only chance to get free is to wash every single dish and have the whole kitchen sparkly clean before the clock strikes.
Penelope squawked, “I’ll do it because I want to but not because you tell me to!”
Mary stuck out her tongue at Penelope who bounced around yelling, “Only snakes stick out their tongues!”from The Answer-Backer Cure
Patsy gave a piercing shriek and ran from the bathroom stark naked and yelling, “I won’t take a bath! I won’t ever take a bath! I hate baths!”
“Then, let Patsy strictly alone for several weeks. When she has about half an inch of rich black dirt all over her and after she is asleep at night, scatter radish seeds on her arms and head. Press them in gently and then just wait.”
Patsy awoke one morning and there on the back of her hand, in fact on the backs of both hands and on her arms and her FOREHEAD were GREEN LEAVES! Patsy tried to brush them off but they just bent over and sprang right up again.from The Radish Cure
