Summary:

Sally is sent by her mother to pick up some items. But she keeps coming home with something different... and wild stories to tell!

This story is designed to get information about "list intonation" -- that distinctive melody people use when listing items.

Is it the same melody in every language? It might be. We don't know! That's what we're trying to find out.
