Sun Day

The sun came up one morning to find all the windows shuttered and the doors locked. “Wake up, everyone! Time to come outside and play!” But no one did and the sun grew lonely and sad. All that day the sun dimmed until it burned as a tiny cinder hovering over the horizon.

“We need a new sun, this old one is boring and dull,” said some important scientist. “I shall make a new one.” And he did, a small sun about the size of a basketball, which he hung from a string in the parlor. People heard about his brilliant idea and ordered their own from his page, for only $29.99, shipping included.
