A day in the short-lived life of Christie Eglinton,

or Of the virtues of fresh entrails on child growth

An illustrated tale, available at the store

Christie Eglinton was short.

 

Of course, one could hardly expect a toddler to be anything but short, but there was something noticeable about Christie's shortness.

 

For starters it put her far below a person’s normal field of vision making her mostly invisible.

 

A good thing for her, obviously.

For you, not so much.

 

It's not that Christie was mean or anything like that. Just that she was utterly and absolutely...

 

Gruesome.
