...and another thing

Wee Golden had a few more things to say;

"I am saving up for the one thousand dollars," said Wee Golden
"Really," I responded "What are you going to buy?"
"Six houses and a pony."
"Hmmm..." said I, not really sure what to say to that.
"Yes." continued Wee Golden, "I'll give you the pony."
"Why thank you, but where would I keep a pony?"
Wee Golden thought for a moment, had a look around, and then he told me.
"In a gate." he said
"A gate? I want to keep it in the house."
"You can't do that!" said Wee Golden with a look of concern on his wee cherubic face.
"Well why not?" said I.
"Because when you are asleep it will lick your face."

Wee Golden sounds like quite an entertaining child...

(Do you write these events as they happen or are you able to remember them without?)

I don't suppose I would appreciate pony saliva in my face. Perhaps, if should choose to buy a pony, I will keep him in the barn.

He does have a unique perspective. He always surprises me.

I try to write things down as they happen. I don't think I would remember it as well later on. When Wee Small and Dr. Manatee performed the operation on Little Hoot I was writing it down as events unfolded for historical accuracy. Future civilisations may come to depend on the inner truths of tummy mountain, so I undertake this role quite seriously.

I have not had pony saliva in my face either, and I may have to heed Wee Golden's advice to avoid it. Not sure how I would keep the pony ïn the gate" though.

Yes, you really have to be careful of those face-licking ponies....

I would build the pony a house of its own.

...or a nice gate to live in
