• A pink teddy bear
(So far, so good. But she’s just warming up.)
• A medium-sized ball that is purple with pink and blue diamonds.
(Um, honey, I’m not sure bouncy balls come in argyle.)
• A pinwheel
(Aha! Now we’re talking. THIS I can handle. Little do I know she’s just putting me off my guard for the final blow…)
• A toy shark—rainbow-colored. Any TYPE of shark, I’m told—”you know, like hammerhead or the other kinds.”
(Oh, sure. What matters species when it’s got rainbow-colored skin? Sure, kid, I’ll get right on that.)
