However, the egg only got larger and larger, and more and more human: when she had come within a few yards of it, she saw that it had eyes and a nose and mouth; and when she had come close to it, she saw clearly that it was Humpty Dumpty himself. "It cant be anybody else!" she said to herself. "Im as certain of it, as if his name were written all over his face!" ( ) "And how exactly like an egg he is!" she said aloud, standing with her hands ready to catch him, for she was every moment expecting him to fall. "Its very provoking," Humpty Dumpty said after a long silence, looking away from Alice as he spoke, "to be called an egg very!"
