"'Well, this is grand!' said Alice. 'I never expected I should be a Queen so soon....'
So she got up and walked about--rather stiffly just at first, as she was afraid that the crown might come off: but she
comforted herself with the thought that there was nobody to see her, 'and if I really am a Queen,' she said as she sat down
again, 'I shall be able to manage it quite well in time.'
Everything was happening so oddly that she didn't feel a bit surprised at finding the Red Queen and the White Queen sitting
close to her, one on each side...."-- from "Through the Looking-Glass," by Lewis Carroll.
