Me: Uh oh, Lucy, looks like Pepper found your Barbie.
Lucy: Awwww! Dang it! She chewed her hand all up!
Me: Well, now, whose fault is that?
Lucy: Mine, but this was one of my favorites!
Me: I’m sorry that happened, kiddo. We have to make sure we keep our stuff picked up.
Lucy: (brightening) But hey! I could just pretend that she’s in the military and she got hurt and now she’s a wounded veteran!
Me: That’s a great idea!
Lucy: (whispers) She doesn’t like to talk about her hand though.
