Jill eyed the chicken suspiciously and decided to pick up the bread.
She bent down and reached out for the lovely crusty bloomer nestling in the bracken.
Unfortunately, Jill had forgotten to go for her eye-test a few weeks before and what she thought was the bloomer was, in fact, a member of the Agryligeon Snake family, well known around those parts, a short fat snake which was very very good at disguising itself as lovely crusty bloomers whenever the need arose.
Need I say more? One short sharp bite from those fangs and Jill............well Jill died a very unpleasant death on that path on the mountainside. Suffice to say that when the Mountain Rescue team came a-looking, all that remained was a couple of buttons and three rather large safety pins. Funny thing was, the lovely red ribbons which Jill had tied her hair up with that day had disappeared. Rumour has it that one particular member of the Agryligeon Snake family roams the mountainside wearing a couple of fetching red bows on either side of its head - but remember, this is just a rumour.
Moral: Always check your bloomers carefully before picking them up (now why does that sound peculiar?)
