I meet my friend's 4-year-old niece when she and her grandma pick us up from the airport. She greets me by handing me a lollipop (orange, because she wanted the purple one). On the car ride home she chatters away, telling us all about her Daddy's garden - "there are snails in the garden and they eat the tomatoes and they eat the capsicans"

My friend tells her that I ride horses and have horses at home.

"I have horses at my house" she counters

"Really? Do you have horses too?"

"No," she admits, "I have snails"
