No one in either kingdom could remember why they had so many spears, rock throwers, bows, arrows, daggers, and slingshots. And they had been making them for so long that everyone had forgotten how to do anything else, like gardening, weaving, or playing games. This was just as well, because there really was no room left even to bounce a ball, let alone plant a garden or set up a loom. All the food came in cans, and people wore armor (which was extremely uncomfortable) instead of suits and dresses.
