I was covering a Family Fun Carvinal hosted by the Indiana Free Library when I decided to sit-in during storytelling. The man was telling a group of children the fable about a lion that was eating his food by a river and saw another lion eating. The greedy lion wanted the other lion's food so he attacked the other lion! The "other" lion was his own reflection, so when he attacked the lion, he drowned. The storyteller kept shouting "HE DROWNED!! THE LION DROWNED IN THE RIVER!!" to the point that it deeply upset the little girl and she completely lost it. Lesson learned!
