“Think of your own shoe.”

After the dancing had gone on for some time, the princess told the wizard that another young man had come to seek her hand, and asked what she should think of next morning when he came up to the palace to guess her thoughts.

“Listen! I will tell you,” replied the wizard. “Choose something very easy and simple, and he will be less likely to think of it. Think of your own shoe; he will never guess that. Then you can have his head cut off. But, mind! don’t forget to bring me his eyes to-morrow night. I will have either them or your own. Remember our bargain!”

WHAT IS IT?

I soon saw that, after all, the food was not my sort, so I went off again directly, but not before one of the Yellow Things had plucked up courage to come back and actually threaten to attack me – me, . .
