Unwillingly Miranda wakes,
Feels the sun with terror,
One unwilling step she takes,
Shuddering to the mirror.

Is old and gray and dirty;
Twenty-nine she was last night;
t
This morning she is thirty.

The other day, I was sitting on the edge of my bed, and I couldn’t remember whether I was going to bed or had just woken up!” The third lady smiles smugly. “Well, my memory’s just as good as it’s always been, knock wood”. She raps the table. With a startled look on her face, she asks, “Who’s there?”
