getting together with a few people for a nice dinner and visiting
my nine-year-old turned her nose up at that

"hmm? i think i would want to go to the pool, wear a dress, play games and have a pink cake. even though a pink cake is, ... you know!?"
(not cool at nine, even though it was at seven, and apparently will be again at forty!)
