The First Story That Ever Made Me Cry

The first story I ever cried over was The Tale of Jemima Puddle-duck, by Beatrix Potter. That business about the eggs just got to me.
I didn't realize back then... I hadn't even heard the term... but that was my introduction (or should that be introDUCKtion?) to the literary device known as tragic irony.
