Once upon a time, a girl bought a ham.
She made the said ham for dinner, and it was well enjoyed. The next day, some of that ham was used for lunch, and then again for dinner.
But every time this girl went to the refrigerator, that leftover ham kept staring at her. And for some strange, unknown reason, (maybe it’s because it was a ginormous ham and she has a small family), that ham didn’t seem to be disappearing. Even though her family was eating it.
So what did this girl do? She got creative. Changed things up and made some into a new dinner.
And when there was still some ham leftover the next night, she decided to use it in her dinner once again.
But guess what? There was still more of that ham waiting there in the refrigerator. She was just about at her wit’s end with this ham, but she decided to give it one more go.
And she was glad that she did.
