Lemme set the scene:
It's the evening after our daughter's 5th birthday party. During the course of the party, one of the guests had accidentally yanked the lacy princess canopy hanging from the ceiling over her bed. Now, at bedtime, she wants the canopy back up before going to sleep.
me: Sorry, we can't put it back up because the hook got lost during your party.And scene.
her: Then what are we going to do? We need to get it back up!
me: Don't worry, we'll get another hook tomorrow at the store.
her: You can't get hooks at the store!
me: You can't? Where do you think you get them then?
her: From a pirate!
