The Sap Lady

So apparently there are places in this world where parents warn their children not to play on the beach at night by telling them stories of an old hag that walks that narrow strip between land and sea in the hours between twilight and sun rise. This hag carries with her a sack of sap and if she comes across a child will use this sap to seal the child's eyes shut and then stash them in her sticky sap sack where they are held captive until she takes them back to her dwelling where she entombs them in amber for all eternity. This hag is known as the Sap Lady.

These are the things parents actually tell their children.

I'll stick to Humpty Dumpty, thank you, and it's message that even with teamwork, spanning species, no less, there are some things you just can't fix.
