Once upon a time ...

...there was a land very much like the one you and I know.

[Edited to follow the rule. There's only one; you'd think it would be easy!]

In this land, every person got one small wish each day.

Now, by "small", that didn't mean inconsequential, but it had to actually be a wish for something of diminutive size.

Say, for example, a twelve-inch piano player.

This brings us to another difference between our land and this other land: a large population of twelve-inch people, many of whom play tiny instruments.

Fortunately, this world was not located on our planet, where a single clumsy human could have wiped out the entire virtuoso population.

So, these daily wishes made people pay attention to small things much more than you or I do.

But then one day, a normal sized traveller, from a world very much like our own, arrived on their planet.

In fact, even though they had CDs and radio and such, the people much preferred to make their own music and listen to the music they and their friends made.

But there was one small girl, of all these small people, who could not make music, and whose own wishes did not magically come true.

So she became a philtre maker of astounding reputation.
