Frogs have always been in a hurry. When all the animals were still developing inside eggs deciding what they would become, the frogs could not wait. They hurried outside with only a stubby tail to push themselves with.
The frogs rushed about trying to see everything around them all at once. Soon they grew big bulbous eyes that stuck out from their heads. They could not see as well as the more patient animals who took time to grow eyes for seeing far away or very close, as suited their nature. But even today they stare around and look at everything as they rush from place to place.
When animals began to crawl out of the water and onto land, the frogs rushed ahead. They grew legs and let their tails shrink and fall off so that they could be ahead of the rest.

He loved the taste of fresh bread, warm honey and clear cool water. He loved the wind, the sky and every snowflake.

As she grew thinner the illusion's power increased. Soon she could not look at her reflection without seeing some horrible, fat, wallowing creature staring back at her.
Her skin grew loose upon her bones, and every sag transformed itself into a roll of ugly greasy fat before her shadowed eyes. Her family and friends became concerned for her life as her youth and beauty faded away.
Cooks competed with one another to create the most delicious fare to tempt her into eating. Dressmakers were called in to produce lovely sparkling creations that would make any girl feel beautiful.
