Once of a late winter night， Mother Laima who was wandering over the earth， came into a peasant's hut to get warm.
Before leaving， she called the peasant's wife to her side.
“Because you let me warm myself in your hut，” said she， “I will make three of your wishes come true.”
The peasant's wife was filled with excitement.
“Let the sausage get browned in the pan！” cried she without thinking.
The same moment the sausage in the pan began to hiss and to sizzle！
The peasant came running and began scolding his wife.
“Yu ninny you！” cried he. “Why couldn't you wish for some money？ I hope the sausage sticks to your nose！”
No sooner were the words out of his mouth than there was the sausage stuck to his wife's face just under her nose， and there was no tearing it off！
The peasant was frightened and begged Laima to remove the sausage.
Laima did as he asked.
“You are not the first to have wasted my gifts so thoughtlessly，” said she. “You told me your three wishes and I made them all come true. So goodbye for now and fare you well！”
