the ambitions of a five year-old girl

While we were in the car for so much of a long day driving from Cambridge to remote inner Maine, Lucy spent some time thinking about her life goals and made the mistake of recording her thoughts in her sketchbook.
Lucy wishlist

1. get gawn [gown]
2. killing Iris
3. win trophy
Iris was pretty bitter about the grown-ups' amusement over this rather psychopathic list. Oh, psychotic bloodlust, so much more acceptable when embodied in a cute little tapdancing girl. Visiting my aunt and uncle, who prominently feature in their home the remains of a large black bear once shot by my uncle, one couldn't help but think Lucy could combine 2 and 3 with great satisfaction in her black little heart.
