Cherry Picking (with my daughter, aged five)

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich-man, poor-man … It’s not fair. 

Cheer up.  Next year, sometime, never; this year...  Baby, gypsy, queen; lady... And you’ll go to church in a carriage, wearing satin.

But, I want to marry Mr. Bridle.

Why? He’s not rich.

He’s my dentist.  He’s a tooth fairy.
