"WHAT DO YOU COME FOR?"
There was an old woman who lived all by herself, and she
was very lonely. Sitting in the kitchen one night, she
said, "Oh, I wish I had some company." No sooner had she

the flesh had rotted. The old woman's eyes bulged with

man's head. As the old woman watched, the parts came
together into a great, gangling man. The man danced around
and around the room. Faster and faster he went. Then he
stopped, and he looked into her eyes. "What do you come
for?" she asked in a small voice that shivered and
