The twins loved going to the big mall where the brightly colored steer statues were. They would beg their parents to place them on top so they could pretend to ride a bull; an act they saw when their parents took them to the rodeo.
Marjorie whispers to her sister, “When I grow up I'm going to marry a cowboy.”
Between giggles, Margaret eagerly replies, “Me too.”
Curiously, a little boy walked over to the statues where the two girls were sitting.
“Horsey! I want to ride a horsey too!”
The girls jumped off the steer statues while their mother grinned and whispered,
“Girls, looks like we've got one cowboy, we just need one more.”
