This is a story of a woman who goes to fetch eggs from her chickens to sell at the market. She finds that she has many eggs to sell and begins to fantasize about all the wonderful things she will buy and all the wonderful things she can do once she has sold the eggs. She begins to paint an extravagant picture that continues to grow. However in all her excitement, she fails to watch her step and trips sending all the eggs crashing to the ground. She realizes that she shouldn't count her chicks before they hatch. ( )
