There was once a troll named Ugh. He was like most trolls, he lived in a world that was always dark. He liked it that way; Always hidden away from the world. He did what trolls do. He went about his daily affairs ignoring the light of day, always keeping his eyes on the ground. Until one day, while munching on his midday grub, he caught out out of the corner of his eye, a ray of sunshine casting a golden beam of light on a lone wildflower. For the first time in Ugh's life he saw pure beauty. He was perplexed by this singular flower that could grow between the thorns of roses and stand above the tangles of the honeysuckle. In the days to follow Ugh found himself returning to that spot to try and catch a glimpse of the majesty of a world he dared not dream of. Over time Ugh began to visit the meadow that was home to the wildflower less and less, because he knew that the flower belonged to a world that was not his. After a while Ugh began to forget about the wildflower. And then, one day after returning home from a day of toil, he found a crack in the wall. The crack let in a tiny blade of light that was shining in on a small wildflower.

This is one of those times when my brain is screaming at me, and I know the the best way to calm it, is to type type type type type type type. But my house really smells terrible right now, and I've narrowed it down to the fridge. So my evening is probably going to be spent on that.
