Pool of Tears

When things don't go to plan and everything looks different...

"I wish I hadn't cried so much!" said Alice, as she swam about, trying to find her way out.  "I shall be punished for it now, I suppose, by being drowned in my own tears! That will be a queer thing, to be sure! However, everything is queer to-day."
