Gingerbread-Man Puppet and Pretty-Horse Puppet get married in the puppet theater.
Pretty-Horse Puppet has a mane like you wouldn't believe--
Don't think she doesn't know it, too,
Always tossing her head like that.
Fluffy-Tail Fox Puppet joins the puppet show.
Fluffy-Tail Fox Puppet and Pretty-Horse Puppet sleep together one afternoon.
In the evening, Gingerbread-Man Puppet spreads his soft, fingerless hands and wants to know,
"How could you sleep with Fluffy-Tail Fox Puppet? She's a girl!"
"She's a fox," points out Pretty-Horse Puppet.
They look at each other across the puppet theater, bouncing slightly as puppets will.
"I'm sorry, Gingerbread-Man Puppet, but our marriage is crumbling," says Pretty-Horse Puppet with a toss of her head.
"Bite me!" says Gingerbread-Man Puppet, which is a mistake.
In the next act, Pretty-Horse Puppet and Fluffy-Tail Fox Puppet are married and living in the puppet theater.
God doesn't mind.
When I was a child, I had a pair of puppets that my maternal grandmother had made. They were horses, Pretty-Horse Puppet and Barn-Boy Puppet. I also had a little puppet theater. I think that all of them were hand-me-downs...I know the theater was. Anyway, I was extremely partial to Pretty-Horse Puppet. I liked getting to be the girl. This is a surprise?
