Magpie Tales #112: Virtual Shell

                                                                                                       


The only way there is to take a shell and float over.
Oh, really.
Yes, you must pass through, not disturb any of the good eggs in your path.
Okay.
Be careful please.
Yes, I will be. How long is the trip?
That depends, it may seem like a long time; take it one day at a time.
I am in a hurry.
Did you have breakfast?
Yes, I had some eggs.
Excellent. (Aren't you glad I didn't say egg-cellent?)
Yes, thank you.
You're welcome, now be on your way.
But my shell, it's. . .
Broken? Cracked?
Yes.
That doesn't matter.
Are you sure?
A virtual shell will never fail you, just GO!
Okay, good-bye! 
 Bon voyage!
