Mary and Lydia were playing with stuffed animals in the evening. Lydia and Mary first called their game “doctor,” but then they figured out between them that the stuffed animals merited a change of game. They played “vet” instead, and here was their conversation:
Mary (Kitty): Can you help me? I’m going blind.
Lydia (Vet): What happened? Did you stare into a flashlight?
Mary (Kitty): No, I stared into the sun for two whole days. I got eye surgery and glasses, and it didn’t help.
Abe and I were amused at Lydia’s question, and we also thought it was cute that Mary worked her eye surgery and glasses into the game.
