Another Mad Tea Party!

Alice met her Aunty, Anachronistic Alice, who was sitting on a table with her friend the White Rabbit. He was worried as usual, as he was late for something important. Aunty Alice had to rush off with the rabbit, but before she went, she told Alice a story about going on a journey to a strange land, with talking animals, and Queens made from playing cards. Aunty Alice showed Alice her journal page, a picture of a Queen wearing a china dress. The writing said that she was just like the Queen in Alice in Wonderland, except that she smiled. Alice listened to her Aunt, wondering, as usual, what on earth she was on about. Ah well. It was always interesting to see her.

When her aunt had gone, Alice felt very tired, and instantly fell asleep.

When she awoke, she was in the strangest room with the strangest creatures....

She wondered if she was still dreaming.

There was a terribly mad person using a teacup for a chair. There was another white rabbit, standing on the table! ''How naughty!'' thought Alice.

There was a friendly, but slightly disturbing, cat in a tree, that wouldn't stop grinning and kept fading in and out of view.

The wooden man on the chair was wearing the funniest hat.

''Could I have a cup of tea please?'' Alice asked. But as she spoke, a little dormouse popped his head out of the giant teacup! He had been fast asleep in there!


What a day! Alice continued to dream and dream. She dreamt of many other parties, all starting here at one spectacular party hosted by Vanessa! ''Oh this is such fun'' Alice thought in her dream. I hope I can stay asleep long enough to visit all of these parties!

So sorry I am late
For this important date.
But you're the thirty first blog on the list.

With too little time
I'm leaving this rhyme
For I'm adamant about wanting to persist.

All this running about
Has left me dry in the mouth.
Might I have a cup of that tea?

The rabbit, the door mouse
and all who are here,
make me wish I could stay and be.

Oh my, the time
It goes so fast
I must be on my way

But fear not friend
I shall return
Please……Have a beautiful day.

I have checked out the older Alice's adventures and wonder if younger Alice may fall into similar behaviors. She seems curiouser and curiouser enough!
