Today, Arabelle got a My Little Pony sort of toy with very long mane and tail, accompanied with a comb and two barrettes. Tonight she wanted my help combing the hair. After fashioning the mane according to her preferences, I handed the toy back to her.

She very delicately took it from me, mouth curved into a slight 'o' of excitement, and whispered . . .

"She has a ponytail."

I smiled. Then something occurred to me and I just had to mention it.

"Hey, Arabelle. Your pony has a ponytail."

She stared at me. And then her face lit up with a big smile. Her eyes sparkled as she laughed.
