2. One beautiful day in Spring a young girl went with her eggs to the market to sell them. She carried them in a basket on her head. Her thoughts were pleasant as she went along. She was planning what she would do with the money she would get for the eggs.
She said to herself, "I will buy a dozen of eggs and bring them home and hatch them and feed the little chicks well and when they are big and fat I will get a good price for them.
With the money I will buy a lovely dress and hat and get my hair waved, won't I look lovely. All the lads and lassies will envy me but I will pass them by"
With that she shook her head, the basket fell to the ground and all the eggs were broken.
