Mr. Zoingpler: Dear Madeline, what is the matter?
Madeline: Yvette is so pretty. And i am so....so..... Short!
Mr. Zoingpler: There is nothing wrong with being Short.
Madeline: Short Girls do not Model.
Mr. Zoingpler: That is because Tall Girls are easier to see from a Distance. You are every bit as pretty as Yvette.
Madeline: But Mousier Peek-a-boo chose her.
Mr. Zoingpler: Hmm. Perhaps because Yvette reminds him of his Mother or she has another Quality he likes. That does not mean it is the best Quality of all.
Mr. Zoingpler: It is just his own Personal Taste. Someday Madeline, someone will come along who thinks you are the most Beautiful Girl in the World.
Madeline: Mr. Zoingpler, really?
Mr. Zoingpler: I am sure of it.
