Me: You know what I want?
Daniel: What do you want?
Me: I want a pony.
Daniel: Why would you want a pony?
Me: Because it's a PONY...and I want to buy it a party hat.
Daniel: So you can pretend it's a unicorn...
Me: No. That's just ridiculous. It's so I can throw it a surprise party.
Daniel: Don't you think the pony will be suspicious when you subsequently buy it a party hat?
Me: Hmm...Okay. I can buy the pony and the party hat together but then throw the actual party months later. The pony won't suspect a thing.
Daniel: You're ridiculous.
Me: I don't understand why you're not taking this seriously. This is going to happen.
Me: My future pony doesn't appreciate your skepticism.
