THINGS HAVE CHANGED
Thurber modernizes an old story that everyone has read or heard.
It has to do with a nefarious wolf who kept a vigil in an ominous forest until a little girl came along carrying a basket of food for her grandmother.
With alacrity, this vivacious youngster told the wolf the address to which she was going.
Hungry and gaunt the wolf rushed to the house.
When the girl arrived and entered, she saw someone in bed wearing a nightcap and a nightgown.
While the figure was dressed like her grandmother, the little girl sunnised with only a perfunctory glance that it didn’t have the old lady’s mien.
She approached and became cognizant of the hirsute face of the wolf.
She drew a revolver from her purse and shot the interloper dead.
Thurber arrives at a moral for this story that anyone would find difficult to refute: It is not so easy to fool little girls nowadays as it used to be.
