#1664: Mycology


[[Two children, a girl and a boy, are talking to an adult woman as they walk away from her. The boy has a bucket.]]

Girl: Me and Jack are going up the hill to fetch a pail of water.

[[The children have left; the woman calls after them.]]

Woman: Okay, have fun!

[[The woman stands and thinks.]]

Woman: … wait. What the heck is going on with the hydrology around here?

{{Title text: Jill and Jack
