She always wanted a horsey, a brown one all shiny, pretty and new. It made no difference that it was well past her family’s assets, she had to have her brown bundle of joy. She’d been digging up change in the family car seats, for months now, but only had a grand total of sixteen dollars and eighteen cents. Maybe this was a drop in the bucket, but it brought a smile to her dainty brow, and it emboldened her to keep building her assets, til the day she could have a shiny brown horsey all pretty and new.
