the caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence. At last the caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth and addressed her in a language, sleepy voice. Who are you? Said the caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation, Alice replied, rather shyly. Hi. I hardly know, sir, just at present at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then. What do you mean by that? Said the caterpillar, sternly. Explain yourself. I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, sir, said Alice, because I'm not myself. You see I don't see, said the caterpillar, I'm afraid I can't put it more clearly, Alice replied very politely, for I can't understand it myself to begin with. And being so many different sizes in a day is very confusing. It isn't, said the caterpillar. Well, perhaps you haven't found it so yet, said Alice. But when you have to turn into a chrysalis you will some day you know, and then after that into a butterfly. I think you'll feel it a little queer, won't you? Not a bit, said the caterpillar. Well perhaps your feelings may be different, said Alice. All I know is it would feel very queer to me
