Overheard at the kitchen table:
Doll character: Barbara Pym sang so high she broke a glass.
Other doll character: Barbara Pym doesn't sing, she writes.
First doll: You sing so high you break glass.
Second doll (singing): I've been working on the railroad (crash!) . . .
I swear to you I am not making this up. A doll just said, "She does not sing. She is a novelist."
