“Help! Help me!” yelled the princess from a small opening at the top of a large tower. “A wicked old witch trapped me up here, and I can’t get down!”
“But how can I get you down?” I questioned in reply from the base of the tower.
“I have a rope and a large bucket up here.” Using the rope, the princess began to lower the bucket down to me.
“Go find some material to put in the bucket that I can use to help me get down,” the princess explained. “Once you fill the bucket, I can use the rope like a pulley to raise the bucket back up to me.”
“What material should I get?” I asked, puzzled.
“Think of something!” she yelled back. “Anything that I can use to help me get down safely.”
“Hmm,” I thought. “Okay, I think I have an idea!” I yelled up to her.
I ran into town to the local shops.
