Today my grand daughter said "I wish we had an Ox named Sven".
I said "What would the neighbors say if we had an Ox?".
She said "Get rid of that Ox!".
So I said "Then on Sunday we'll put a harness on the Ox and make him pull a cart. We'll take all of the neighbors for a ride through town. They'll talk and laugh, and wave at people as they pass by. And when the ride is done, they'll say keep the Ox. We like the Ox so much, we'll get him some red socks. And every Sunday we'll make the Ox pull the neighbors through the town.....in his red socks.".
She laughed, and said "ok".
