If I can't eat the turkey leg, then I'll eat yours!
The gods, Lisa and Mark, had a son named Pedro. Pedro is the god of calamity and rage. One night at dinner, Pedro became angry because his mom ate the last turkey leg. Because of this, Pedro cut off and ate his mothers legs instead. Pedro's father was disappointed in Pedro, so as his punishment he made Pedro as short as his temper.
Pedro did not want to be the only little person ever to exist, so he decided to create little people all throughout the world.
I will create more little people so I'm not the only short one!
Little people could do almost everything big people could do, but, they could not open doors.
At the time period, they only had big, thick panels of wood at doorways to block off separate rooms. In order to open a door, you'd have to pick up the panel, move it, walk through, then move it back. Little people couldn't do that on their own. A very intelligent little person had an idea. He decided to create a device called "hinges" which he would attach to the door and door frame. He carved two holes in the door (there were no door handles at the time). One hole was high up for big people, and one hole was low for little people.
In the end, big people no longer had to help little people open doors because they were able to do it on their own.
