The Blue Gala of Sadness was much anticipated, and society turned inside out for it. The invitation promised depth of feeling never encountered before and requested that everyone wear their most glittering tears. This pity party was no place for her, as she had exchanged her ability to cry for a very stylish, larger head. Having never been a careful reader of invitations (or of any kind of thing really,) she thought it was going to be just another successful ball for her to attend, musing to herself as she dressed that the whole party would go from blue to green with envy over the enormity of her new head. When she arrived, it was almost immediately revealed by the beautiful weeping attendees that she had no tears to shed; she was shunned to such an extent that big heads became regarded as very unfashionable indeed.
