Adela's father recently took her to the toy store to buy a gift for her friend's birthday, and then, once there, informed her that she would not be getting a toy herself.
Which, to a three-year-old, makes about as much sense, as, well, everything else.
Though she was be all accounts able to respond adequately when her dad asked her why she needed those My Little Pony dolls — "because I don't have them" — Adela was still nowhere near owning the toys she desired so much.
So she decided to play the only card in her recently developed hand: "If I don't get any ponies or any horses, I won't be able to love you anymore."
