"There weren't any pigs there," little Opie told Earnest.
"Perhaps I too should call on them then, to share myself," Earnest the pig said.
"They were all nice. They held me and squeezed me all nice too, and they smelled pretty," said Opie.
"What does pretty smell like?" asked Wilbur the Acrobatic Goat.
"Like your mama used to smell," said Earnest matter-of-factly. And they all sighed.
"When I ran on the floor, my toes got all slippery but it was fun," Opie went on. "And there was a barn that was as big as this entire farm!"
"Not!" said Moose.
"Highly unlikely," said Earnest.
"How do you know how big it is?" said Opie.
"How many of you could fit int he barn?" asked Earnest.
"I think more than five hundred," he said.
"That's a lot of yous," said Earnest.
"I felt big there," Opie said. And he wandered off to lay down near old Rosie and Sir tripod Goat.
"I'm full of something good," he said as he shut his eyes for a good nap.
